    Please accept our condolences, the world will be a little dimmer without your mum’s bright smile and optimistic outlook. However, the legacy that she has left is evidenced daily in the values that her children and grandchildren live by.

    You were fortunate in having such an amazingly loving and strong woman as your parent, one who was in many ways years ahead of her time and one who without doubt set the standard of what it means to be an exceptional parent, friend and citizen.

    Take comfort in your memories and celebrate a life well lived and well loved.

    In sympathy and in love,

    Morgan, Val and Fiona
