  11. My heartfelt condolences to Rob and everyone in Jill’s precious family and many, many friends.
    When Jill walked into the multipurpose room to come to the ‘Prime Fusion’ aerobic exercise classes she just lit up the whole room. Her wonderful voice projection made sure I always heard her “hello Deb!” no matter how many ‘girls’ were chatting at the top of their voices… on occasions when I was having trouble getting them all into line to start the class, her dulcet tones urged them to attention and caused a ripple of laughter through the class.
    Jill was welcoming to new members and never minded if somebody stood in ‘her spot’.. just there to my right in the second row.. and indeed took them under her wing.
    When I was going through some tough times she always offered positive and comforting words which gave me much solace.
    I loved getting her messages with photos from her and Rob’s trips and have made copious notes of where she recommended I should go to when I eventually get a chance to get on the road with my little van..
    You have truly been blessed to have such a wonderful person in your lives, and we shall all miss her tremendously when we eventually return to our aerobic classes
    My love and heartfelt sympathy to all
    Debbie xx

  12. Such a beautiful service. A really fitting tribute and celebration of the very full and adventurous life of Jill. A very fun, kind, gentle, endearing and infectiously positive spirit, traits that she very clearly passed on to her children that will ensure her legacy lives on, as will her resemblance (Julie!!). She will be very deeply missed and our thoughts are with all of you at this difficult time.

    Rest In Peace Jill.

    Love from Paul, Dee, Dylan and Charlize Costantin
