  1. The last link to a generation that had been largely stolen from me, has now gone.
    I feel sad but also grateful for the many happy meetings we had first here in Amsterdam and later many times in Melbourne.

    I like to thank my cousin Helen and her family for taking such wonderful care of Betty during so many years.

    Far away but not in our thoughts Annette and I mourn with you

  2. Happy memories of your Aunt, Helen. I saw the notice in the paper today and it brought back some wonderful times. Betty was my Mum, Effie Kagan’s, best friend.
    Mum died 26 years ago and I lost touch with Betty not long after that. I can’t believe she lived to 101 years after such a traumatic wartime childhood.
    Betty and Anne did the catering for my wedding in 1966 in true Dutch style. I remember you and Peter very well.
    May she Rest In Peace.
    Love to your family

    1. wow. so nice to hear from you. We will never forget aunty Kay. She was a truly wonderful woman. I also remember you wedding in Box Hill- I was there and it was a big event in my childhood. I wonder what they cooked. how incredible

      Love to you and yours from Helen

  3. Hi Helen, a beautiful ceremony to celebrate the life of Aunty Betty. What a life, both difficult & wonderful. Betty would be so proud of you, albeit ‘rolling her eyes’ at times. Music & eulogies were lovely. Thinking of you all.

    Love Narelle

  4. Beautiful send off Helen, thank you for sharing your memories
    Shalom to you all, may you always hold Betty`s lovely smile close
    Much love Lisa, Emil & Issy. xox

  5. I only met Betty a few times, but I always think fondly of her because she commented favourably about my cooking. I remember her as a loving lady, devoted to her extended family. Our thoughts are with you Helen and family. It was a lovely service

  6. Dear Helen and Family
    What a beautiful service for ‘Aunty Betty”. What an incredible life Betty lived. Helen what a wonderful tribute you gave to Betty and we certainly laughed and smiled with you and felt in awe of Betty’s life lived so well.
    Helen you have been a most wonderful niece to Aunty Betty in all the years that we have known you. That shows so clearly because we have all met Aunty Betty at various events of the years.
    We loved the music you chose for today.
    Aunty Betty a woman of style, making the most of the rich opportunities in life.
    Best wishes to all the family.
    Love
    Jenny, Xavier and Greta xox

  8. For me it is something special to have known Betty, although we have met only around 6 times in the last 14 years, namely the 4 times I visited Australia . Through Simon and Annette I met Betty and Helen and Eddy . I am so glad that happened !
    And it is an honor to have been able to watch this funeral ceremony , thank you Helen , it was very special ,
    Love Marjan

  9. What a wonderful technic to say goodbye on a distance and at the time be close. Helen I loved your speech, and for a moment seeing your family again, wish you all the best with processing the loss of dear Betty.

    I only met Betty shortly but that meeting had a great impact.
    I will always remember Betty with a big smile

    take care
    Nicky& Leslie

  10. Helen, that was a suuuper celebration of your Aunty Betty’s life and your love and respect for each other. The best virtual service I have ever attended. Quotes and memories from mutual school friends were lovely.
