    It was truly an honor and privilege to meet your parents, Silvana, when we came to Australia in 2020. It was fun to speak to them in Italian, and enjoy their warmth and hospitality.

    Losing parents is never easy – it leaves a huge void that can only be filled with sweet memories and gratitude for all they did to make us who we are.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this sad and challenging time that represents a chapter completed, and the beginning of a new one.

    Con molto affetto, Marilyn & Carmine

    Cristina will be sorely missed by everyone in our family. She was a constant presence even though we lived in different states. We spent many holidays visiting either in Melbourne of Brisbane. It’s so sad to think she has left this earth. May she be in peace and harmony. Heartfelt condolences to the whole family but especially silvana and John. Much love. Lili and John

    Such a beautiful ceremony, and loved finding out more about Zia in your stories. We especially loved the great grandchildren reading 🙂

    Death is nothing at all.
    It does not count.
    I have only slipped away into the next room.
    Nothing has happened.
    Everything remains exactly as it was.
    I am I, and you are you, and the old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged.
    Whatever we were to each other, that we are still.
    Call me by the old familiar name.
    Speak of me in the easy way which you always used.
    Put no difference into your tone.
    Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.
    Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together. Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
    Let my name be ever the household word that it always was.
    Let it be spoken without an effort, without the ghost of a shadow upon it. Life means all that it ever meant.
    It is the same as it ever was.
    There is absolute and unbroken continuity.
    What is this death but a negligible accident
    Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight
    I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just round the corner.
    All is well.
    Nothing is hurt; nothing is lost.
    One brief moment and all will be as it was before.
    How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting when we meet again!
    Henry Scott Holland.

    Dear Silvana & Family, We extend to you our heart felt condolences on the passing of your dear mother, Cristina. She was a brilliant and capable woman. She made my wedding gown and my bridesmaids’ dresses. That was nearly 45 years ago. She made them without patterns, after I took her to see what I wanted at Gardam’s Bridal Store in Brisbane City. I found her to be cultured, articulate, elegant and an artist of precision as manifested through her dress-making ability. Her daughter, you, takes after Cristina, in the sharing and teaching of Italian to exceptional standards at SSC. My daughter, Jessica, remembers you with great respect and thanks. The tradition lives on, the excellence, the artisanship, is all there in Cristina’s legacy to you. There will be a huge void but you are truly fortunate to have had such an extraordinary and loving Mum. God bless you all. Bruna & Jess Reedman

      Thank you so much, Bruna. I’m sorry, I only just saw your beautiful message and I’m truly touched by it. I remember Jessica with great fondness; it was such a pleasure to have her in my class all those years ago. I hope she is happy and doing wonderful things in her life. Love to you both.

      Thank you so much, Laura. She was a wonderful mother and person. I am at peace knowing that I did all I could to make her happy and feel loved during her last few years on earth. I know she is with the Lord and finally at peace herself.
