  12. Mum, I’m going to miss you, the laughs, cheekiness, our gin and wine sessions, outings and talks. You have taught me to be independent, understanding of others, you taught me to push through the barriers with dignity, love and hard work. You always made the time to listen and put others first before yourself.
    The morning before you passed, you grabbed my arm and told me how proud you are of us all and the several kisses I gave you on the cheek from us all and you managed to give me a smile. ❤️❤️
    Rest In Peace Mum, l love you heaps and as you would say, lots of love always. ❤️❤️

    Robyn December 23, 2021

    Hugs and love

  15. My heart has broken with the thought of never to hug you
    Never to talk to you
    Never to hear your voice
    To feel your touch
    To see your beautiful smile

    Everything reminds me of you
    The clouds
    The birds
    The beach
    The trees
    Everything because of all the amazing memories you created with me and for me.

    I’ll miss you forever with everyI breath and nothing and no one can take away my love and memories with you.
    You might be gone in body but you will always live on in my heart, my mind and my children
    I love you and miss you so much mum.
    At the moment it hurts to breathe but I know in time it will get easier so please guide me in the mean time 😚 give me strength

  16. Anne was loved and respected by all and we offer our sincerest sympathies to Bob and all members of the Cridge family.
    We were welcomed as a friend of Anne for more than 60 years and in that time we saw many examples of her love of family, strength and humour.
    There are many wonderful memories to ease the sadness.

  17. Thank you Ann for always being so welcoming to this ring in; for all the wonderful and wide-ranging chats over a cup of tea or a glass of gin. I will miss your kind smile and that cheeky streak that made me smile in return. All my love and condolences to your family at this time.
