    Cannot believe you have gone, but we knew you fought so hard and you are now in peace my gorgeous friend. We met you when we first moved to NZ and you became our gorgeous and stern nanny for Jade and Ben and from that we became lifelong friends. Heartbroken beyond words. Thinking of you Craig and family. Always here for you.

    My darling friend Bex, words cannot describe the sadness we feel at your passing. We have such fond memories of our time together in London and all our amazing travels. You were the mum of the group, always there to organise something, or lend a hand. Such a selfless and kind human. You lit up a room with your enthusiasm and were always the first to be there if anyone needed you. You fought hard and remained strong. We are comforted by the many memories we have and you are forever in our hearts. Much love Zoe and Troy xxx

      Rest in peace Becs. You fought so hard. You will be sorely missed by all who knew you and loved you.

      Becs Journey’s Just Begun.

      Don’t think of her as gone away
      Her journey’s just begun
      Life holds so many facets –
      This earth is only one.
      Just think of her as resting
      From the sorrows and the tears
      In a place of warmth and comfort
      Where there are no days and years.
      Think how she must be wishing
      That we could know today,
      How nothing but our sadness
      Can really pass away.
      And think of her as living
      In the hearts of those she touched
      For nothing loved is ever lost.

      And she. Was loved so much

      ♥️. ♥️. ♥️
