  12. Oh Emma.. how i miss our chats when you would come and have your hair done. That one on one time at my house were always full of gossips and laughs. All those biscuits and lollies you would bring for the girls were loved by them. Rest in peace Emma xx

You used to tell me what a good mother I was but how could I not be with such a great role model like you. You gave up so much for us kids and I will be forever grateful. I love you so much and look forward to meeting up with you again for one of your cuddles.
    Love you bigger than biggest

  15. Growing up as a child and a young man I couldn’t have wished for a better mother. When it came to her children she was truly selfless.

  18. Elma made me laugh so much with her quick wit and cheeky sense of humour. Not at all surprised to see so many messages for this beautiful woman and her family. She is unforgettable and will be missed xxx
