  55. May you forever rest peacefully and fly with the Angels. Lida you have a beautiful spirit and I will always remember how kind you were to me when I stayed with you in Bairnsdale. We prepared dinner together and I peeled maybe too many apples, trying to get the skin off without it breaking – because that meant that I would get married one day. You arranged a collection of barbie dolls for me to play with which I loved as I didnt have any Barbies. Always caring and supportive.
    A wonderful mother and friend. You will not be forgotten.

    Much love
