  3. How can I sum up a friendship that has spaned over 45yrs in a paragraph….impossible….I will miss our chats & our laughs together discussing our favourite subject “our families” We could go for a while between chats & it was as if it was only a few days ago & pick right up where we left off always finishing with a “love ya” thats a rare friendship I will treasure always! Rest easy my beautiful friend not only loved by me but “Nevie” & our girls too. Sending hugs & love to Wayne, Nick, Josh, Tegan, Nate, Sophie & Leo

  6. ,I was privileged enough to work with this amazing ,caring crazy out there vibrant full of life lady . No matter what was happening in her own she still gave you all and more to know how you were . From the first moment I met her I was hooked. My children were also blessed as she looked after them and they adored her too. Just thinking of her makes me smile. She has left a mark on me forever .. usually it was the lipstick…but also to live your life to the fullest and do it all with a smile and enjoy every minute. Hold on to the memories as I’m sure you would have many and remember to smile as I’m sure she’s

  28. As the Irish say

    They walk beside us every day.
    Unseen, unheard but always near.
    Sill loved, still missed, and very dear…”

  29. Sabrina certainly was a memorable woman! How can we forget the little yellow beetle and bright coloured hair? Everybody that knew her, just couldn’t help but love her. Credit to her (and Wayne of course), she has raised two wonderful young men to be so loving, caring, kind, driven and compassionate. I know she is and would continue to be, so proud of them both.
    May her colourful and unforgettable presence stay with us always.
    Sending so much love to Wayne, Josh, Tegan, Nick and her precious grandchildren she loved so much!

    I know how unbearable your loss is, Sabrina was a unique & beautiful soul who touched everyone she met. She certainly was the baby whisperer! Always there for us, no matter what time of day or night. Two generations of my family now have wonderful memories of Sabrina! Hold strength in the fact that you were truly loved, she adored you all & the world is a much sader place without her love, laugh & lipstick kisses.

  40. Was no birthday sleep over like a Pabst birthday sleep over. Sabrina was the perfect balance of crazy fun and no shit taken.

  41. As a nurse, Sabrina you were crazier than anyone, and no – one was more passionate, warm and sincere than you. I has been my absolute pleasure to know you. When Jack started year 7 I asked have you met Sabrina yet? He said’ I don’t think so!’ I replied when you do, you won’t forget…. and we never will.
    Love always to ‘her boys’. –

  43. When I was introduced to Sab, what a cracka, Josh Nic were 6-7-8 ish??? I played and sang La Bamba…. I kid you not she got me to play that at least 762,000 times, no exaggeration hahahahahaha, I still see Waynes eyes rollin’ as he was sick of hearing it. You little fellas laughing, it was fabulous… I then 30 odd years later asked her a favour “out of the blue” from 1,300 klms away as could not be there for my niece, and she was there like a flash with helping loving arms and heart …. FOREVER GRATEFUL…. I’m not a ‘color” person, but in QLD today I wear PINK…. All my luv ya gutz Wayne Nic Josh and fam

  51. When I first met you at the Cafe you told me exactly how you liked your coffee and that you will be back for another in a few hours if I passed the test, (thankfully I did) this was the daily routine. Ican’t tell you how much I will miss you. Your amazing personality your smile the way nothing bothered you! You lived life to the fullest and you marched to the rhythm of your own unique drum. I will never forget you and the lessons you taught me without knowing you did.


    My deepest sympathy for Wayne and the family.

    All my love

  53. There are very few people who have the ability to draw others to them, to make them feel uplifted, special and who radiate warmth and care. Sabrina did this in spades and will be dearly missed. Mum and I shared stories over the week about her and send our love to Wayne, the family and to everyone who is grieving her loss.

  54. What we remember is the shock of coloured hair and the bright happy smile! You are so missed Sabrina!
    A great mate to our mother, Jean Smith… you surely were the ‘odd couple’: Mum in her nineties and you dressed in outrageous brightly- coloured clothes! Just picture that! You called her ‘Aunty Jean’ and she loved being part of your life and family! Rest In Peace Sab. Love to Wayne, Josh and Nick . Love Di & Grant
