    Dear family, today we are glad, sad, but grateful. Glad because we saw Auntie Alma one last time a few weeks ago as we passed through Brisbane. Sad that we cannot be there to celebrate the life of this lovely lady. Grateful the we can view today’s service with you all from far away Kununurra in the East Kimberley of Western Australia. Alma opened her heart and her home in January 1974 so that despite the greatest flood Brisbane had ever seen, our wedding could proceed. She (and Hazel) accommodated with grace all the last-minute chaos, fed us and our wedding party and permitted the photographer to take over her living room for the photos before the wedding. Presumably she also had a lot of cleaning up and rearranging to do after we finally left. She was always smiling, accepting and gracious as an aunt and friend, so we share your grief as we mark her passing today. She encouraged daughters Lyn and Wendy to include me often in family events and they became some of my closest cousins. Alma’s faith and integrity were always demonstrated in the way she lived, and we look forward to the great reunion when aging, pain and suffering will be at an end. Love to you all, Bev & Brian, also Andrew & Stella, Christie & Brad, Mark & Lashaye and their families xx

    Shame we couldn’t be there to farewell Aunty Alma and to celebrate her life. Will be watching from the SDA Overflow caravan park in Broome WA. Our thoughts are with the family and Aunty Hazel.
    Love to all
