  3. Dear Fely and family, it was a lovely service today, your emotion reflected the strong bond you have with your mum. She always talked about you and how much you and the family were loved. Adored her granddaughter.
    We’ve had some great times together with Jan, and we will miss her very much. Such a beautiful lady, with a very big heart.
    Our love to you and your family, Rick and Jo Lovett.

  4. Dear Fely and Family

    Jan would have loved that service. We are going to miss her so much. It’s a sad day when commonsense and wisdom are gone from us. Our thoughts are with all of you at this time. At least she is now finally at peace.

    Love Pam & Wayne

  5. Dear Fely, Brianand Zara,

    Condolences for your loss of Jan, a very special lady who loved and was so proud of you guys so much. Anytime we visited she proudly updated us on what you were up to in a way that made us feel like an active participant in your adventures no matter where you were in the world. Jan had a way about her that no matter what kind of day you were having, she could infect you with her big beautiful, warm smile and hug, that would lift your heart and make you feel so welcome and loved.

    As we all do, she had her own way of living life, and the more we hear about her life the more we realise how selfless she lived. I think myself lucky to have considered her a friend and someone who will inspire me to better in life.

    Her heart and mind are at peace now and please know she loved you guys so much.

    With a heavy heart once again, I am truly sorry for your loss.

    Lots of love Phil

    My deepest sympathies to Fely and all of Jenny’s family & friends… sending you peace and comfort in this incredibly difficult time.
    Jenny was a lovely neighbour and we had cats, frogs and decluttering in common.
    I will miss Jenny being next door and I will miss our chats…

  8. Dear Fely, Barbara and family,

    Such a lovely service, Jenny would have loved this. I have so many memories of Jenny as a neighbour living in Boronia, drinking red wine and endless chats about the wonders of the world, and all the parties! She watched over me and I am always grateful for that and I loved her.

    She often spoke of her children Fely, Nick and grandchild Zara, who she loved and was so proud of. Rest in Peace Jenny.

    Much love Sarah and Francis xoxo
