    She means so much to us, she touches our lives.
    We have just lost a wonderful and kind person.

  5. Our love and thoughts are with you all at this difficult time.
    We moved into No 30 Scheele Street in 1987 and became friends with Peter and Brigitte from that time forward. We often managed to catch up whether it was in the street or by having dinners together. Both Peter and Brigitta were very special people and we feel so blessed to have known them. Even when we moved out of the street to Parring Road in 2003, we still managed to keep in touch. Earlier this year I visited Brigitta and we enjoyed another lovely catch up. She was such a beautiful lady with a special love for all her family of which she would so proudly talk about. She was a such a delightful, intelligent, gentle and caring woman and was always interested in everyone. She will certainly be sadly missed.
    Our deepest sympathy
    Cathy, Michael, Amanda and Elisha

  6. Caroline, lovely eulogy from you today and so accurate about your mum.
    My internet was ‘patchy’ but I did get to watch almost of your eulogy, and the grandkids too. Strange world right now, but you all did her a great honour today. Thinking of you and David and family, take care, and catch up soon!

  7. Along with so many other ‘locals’ we have been privileged to have had a happy and rich friendship with Brigi and Peter Johnson. Frequently Brigi said that she needed ‘courage’ in old age. She stands tall amongst all of us as a woman, not only courageous, but faith-filled, generous, kind and a dedicated professional in her career. A wonderful friend and always interesting company! You will be deeply missed, Brigi. Rest in peace dear friend. We are all enriched for having known you and loved you. To your grandchildren, thank you so much for your superb efforts today. Brigi and Peter would be so proud of you all.
    David and Barbara Kitchen

  8. My dear cousins, I wish circumstances were different so we could have been there to give you all a big hug on this very sad day. It was a beautiful service, everyone spoke so well from the heart. I loved hearing the memories and seeing the pictures.

    Brig was an amazing person, always so warm and caring. One of the very rare people who saw life and the world as a wondrous place, full of love and joy. As Luke said, I think she truly was loved by the universe. We will miss her very much.

    With much love,
    Kathryn, Hamish, Tully and Olive
