  8. Nanna would have found that a very classy affair. As would Mum, Brian, Grampa, Shelley, Joanie and all those magnificent people up there with her.

    Beautiful eulogy Auntie Jenny. The imagery you evoked painted a vivid picture of the childhoods your generation had, that flowed on to provide us all with such joy and strength.

    The tributes were lovely. Thank you to Gregory for reading mine with such love. It meant so much to me.

    Mummy Heather and Uncle Felix your readings were beautiful and she heard and felt them.

    To those three of you, having cocktails on Zoom, supporting each other through these organizations- I am forever grateful to you.

    I want my Precious sister, particularly, to know that she is our mother’s daughter and she did her a great service today. Some of us tap dance and moonwalk around while others have to go about the business that needs to be done staying motivated, pragmatic and cool headed. Those efforts never get as much attention, but they deserve all the more.

    I love you so much and I am so thankful to you. I hope you feel Mum’s pride in you today.

  16. It was an honour and privilege to have intimately known Aunty Therese and been a frequent guest in her home through my close friendship with Daphne. She didn’t have much in those early years, but she generously shared it with all who entered her home. She was truly gracious and caring and with a lovely, quiet sense of humor revealed by the wonderful look in her eyes, belying the seriousness in the rest of her face! Last year I was blessed to celebrate her 77th birthday with her in Sri Lanka and was amazed by her energy and engagement even at nearly midnight! When i asked her whether she wasn’t tired, she simply said ‘I love people’ and that, for me, sums up her life! She has unselfishly and lavishly loved all those that came her way, and has had the tremendous blessing of being loved in return. I was a recipient of her love and care and shall treasure her memory always. Rest in peace Aunty Therese and enjoy eternity with Jesus and your loved ones who have gone ahead of you. I shall see you again, before too long!

  17. Our deepest condolences to you and the family Heather also please convey our sympathy to Ryan and the family. Love always Marie & Donald Boustead

  22. Heather, it was a special moment when Brian’s mother sat silently with us as her son shared the story of his life with us willingly speaking for posterity. Attentive, observant and from time to a faint smile would colour her face. That was and will always be special.
