Dear Lida. May you rest in peace.
We will always remember fondly the parties, dinners and games we shared in Seaspray while on holidays with all our families. We got on so well and you were a great support to everyone.
Love Lini and JohnAugust 17, 2020
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 loveSeptember 2, 2020
