Sam Mentioned: “Last Tuesday afternoon, a little while after the Melbourne Cup was run, our beautiful mumma passed away, just 10 days before her 69th birthday.”
“She had fought bravely for a long time and suffered a lot, but finally her big-loving heart just couldn’t do it anymore,” she added.
“Mums are the centre of a family and losing ours has thrown us all in a spin and left a huge, irreparable hole in each of our hearts.”
“We are very, very sad. She was wonderful; kind, loving, loyal, wildly wicked, funny & formidable.”
“This is her ‘happy place’, her rose garden, where we remember her. She will be missed forever, but she’s at peace now… forever an angel,” she wrote.
