    I will remember well, when you spoke to me days after mum had passed. Your words were comforting and kind. I thought to myself what a brave person to pass on such positive vibes when you were going through the unimaginable yourself. Thank you.

    You have left behind a loving family. Some awesome daughters and a sweet granddaughter - what a legacy.
