  4. Barbara and I recently had the privilege of visiting Auntie Thelma, on 21 Dec. Smiling, engaging in conversation, she seemed to actually know who we were(last contact in Geelong, 3 years ago). The memories of her and Uncle Robbie will always be in our minds.

  5. It’s been many years since we left our farm Blairgowrie in Mepunga East to live in Qld but Kaye and I cherish the time we spent with Aunty Thelma (and Uncle Robbie) on their farm. We regarded her as our second mum and she let us get away with all sorts of fun things especially when it came to cake and biscuits. Always bright and happy, never a dull moment, and her memory, she would top the relatives half her age. Our hearts are heavy but the memories bring smiles to our faces. Her life full of love freely given to all.
    United in peace with Uncle Robbie
