  8. Our computer broke down (in sympathy?) two minutes into the service but we are pleased to have watched now instead of 2 a.m. in England. It set in motion many thoughts of our dear sister in law and the times we shared. It was always a pleasure to be in her company and even more to be fed by her (says Roger. It was an honour to have known her. With fond memories. Pat. and Roger

  15. Condolences to John, Alison’s siblings, children and grandchildren for having to say goodbye. We have so many happy memories over the last 50 years and feel the privilege of having known the wonderful woman who was wife, mother, sister, grandmother and also friend to all of us who knew her even for a short time.
    She will indeed be much missed but memories live on of how she enriched our lives.

  16. I thank John and family members for streaming this wonderful and warmly loving service. As a newish member of Clocktower Probus, I unfortunately missed knowing Alison in full flight. However, I regard myself as fortunate to be able to share stories of her life today. What a wonderful lady!

  20. Dear John, Tanya, Justin, Alexis and families
    I have just had the honour of watching Alison’s celebration of life. What a wonderful service.
    John you must be very proud of your children and grandchildren. Everyone spoke so beautifully of their reflections of an amazing and inspirational lady.
    Even though I couldn’t be there it was lovely to see you all again.
    My hope is that your happy memories will carry you through the sad times ahead.
    Kindest regards to you all.

  21. A wonderful service, a lovely tribut to darling Alison from all her family, friends and her Church. I really feel as though I have been with you! So many happy memories sharing your family time in Melbourne, we feel very much part of your extended family! – specially having so many sailing activities in common all the way from West Mersea to Australia!

  22. That was a beautiful and fitting service, very thoughtful. So many happy memories that you (and we) all have, it was lovely to hear them, I’m sure you will cherish them. I fondly remember our trips to see you, the boat adventures, her generosity, and we always knew Alison would put on a fabulous feast. Always busy, but still had time for us. And loved the one-handed cooking 🙂 I’m sorry that we can’t be with you at this difficult time, but know that we are thinking of you all.

    Much love,

    Andrew (nephew, Godson)
