    A truly beautiful service to celebrate your beautiful Mum’s life. Fiona you spoke beautiful words and did so beautifully. Olivia and Chloe you both spoke really beautiful too as did Mark and Uncle Peter.

    I was so honoured to have known you Liz – you warmed my heart.

    Rest well in the loving hands of Jesus.

    My thoughts and prayers are with Jim and all Liz’s families.

  12. Fiona – it was so wonderful to know about your mum and the adventures she had when relatively young. She certainly was a trailblazer – a young single woman traveling overseas during that time! I loved your words and was completely inspired by this life she has lived. In that church, with so few people, there was so much love and admiration and thanks. So thank you my friend, for letting me be part of knowing her through you. I am so very proud of you and know she would’ve felt so damn proud of her gorgeous daughter. Love you lots and those 2 beautiful mini-Fi’s for their heartfelt, clear and very well spoken words. Thinking of you all with all the love we can muster today and always, Vix, Rich, Chloe, Char and Lachman. xxxxx

  13. Liz’s beautiful warm smile and laughter will always be in my memory. I have her hand written recipes which are treasured
    My son, Peter Webb, sends his regards and condolences to all the family and especially to John (Mother of God days shared together)
    With love Heather
