  2. In memory of a beautiful lady, for the person she was before illness took over. She taught me to love a slow combustion stove, she gave me the love of soap making and the love of making a good muffin. We shared her first experience of camping which didn’t go down too well…lol. Her compassion to assist in making this world a better place was shown to me when l needed it the most and her desire to have family close to her when she needed it the most was shared at a later date. She shared a family heirloom with me when l was first married. Something l have always treasured considering l am not her blood relative. She was like a second mum to me, the last years were awful for her, she is in a much better place. God Bless you Val. Until we meet again.

  3. Dearest Val, a precious lady we had the privilege of knowing through an act of yours and Ken’s generosity bringing us down to the Farmer’s camp, and on your trips to Qld. I’m sure you will be terribly missed by your loved ones but rejoicing in heaven with Jesus and no more pain or tears. Deepest sympathy to you Ken and all the family. Iain & Linda Watt
