  1. Dear Pam & Neale & family. Our thoughts & prayers are with you all as you navigate through the loss of your beautiful Mum, Mother in law, Nana & GNana. We didn’t meet Lorna but your stories about her have given me a very full picture of a remarkable woman. Suzanne & Ian x

  2. Hi Pam
    I left a message last night but you don’t seem to have received it!

    It was very upsetting not to be able to hear the service live because of technical difficulties, so it was to view it in the early evening!

    It was a lovely service despite so many of your families not able to attend in person. My condolences to you all.

    There was a lot about Lorna I didn’t
    know but so much I could recall and remember very fondly.

    Thank you for arranging the video because I was able to touch you on your back Pam, as you laid your Roses! I was able to stand for Lorna and touch her coffin as it was placed
    in the funeral limousine.

    So, I felt I was there and able to pay my respects.

    It was such a pleasure to catch up with you and Lorna last year after at least 40 years! We were always great playmates and Lorna (and Harry) were always so kind and generous! I think I spent more time at No. 54 than I did at No. 51!

    1. You’re a dear old friend Robyn. We spent many years as playmates which consequently made you part of our family. And our parents kept watch over each other, after all us children had gone. A special relationship between 2 families over years.
      Thank you for watching and being there with us
      With love, Pam xx

  3. Dear Pam, Julie and families,

    I am so sad for you all, losing a mum, a grandmother of a close friend is always difficult. No doubt you have many loved memories of Lorna to make you smile, I know I do.

    Mostly I remember fun afternoons, after school, swimming in the pool in North Balwyn and being totally spoilt by both Harry and Lorna each time we visited.

    I lost touch with them for awhile in my teens but our friendship reignited when I was in desperate need of financial assistance. I don’t even know how they found out that I needed help… I suspect it was my Dad, Graeme. Harry called and offered me help, something I was not expecting. He said he and Lirna had discussed it and said, “You’re Family Sallie so we want to help you”. I promptly burst into tears hearing this, I felt so incredibly grateful to hear those words! I few years later I repaid them and I will never forget the love and generous it’s they both showed me during a very difficult time.

    After Harry passed in 2014, I kept in touch with Lorna. She told me how much she enjoyed her friends and playing Bridge. Hard to believe she was in her 90’s and was so switched on and keeping active.

    Lorna will be sadly missed and will always have a special place in my heart and in my memories.

    Much love to you all. Sallie xxx

    1. What beautiful words Sallie. So heartfelt.
      I do know that nothing is every more important than family, and here is just one small example.
      Your memories are yours for ever
