From: Iona Paoletti
Carol, Mel and family and Doug, Heather and family. My thoughts are with you on the loss of a much loved mother, grandma and great-grandma. She was a true lady who freely gave of herself, She gave us love, attention, GOOD food and fun. She loved to sing, loved flowers and colour. A few years ago when her memory wasn't really the best, she remembered the words to the songs the groups sang that entertained at the home and sang with them. She loved to leaf through the very colourful Dr Suess book that Carol brought her. We say a fond farewell to a very beloved Aunt Helen and remember her impish grin at the corner of her mouth. Good-bye Aunt Helen, You fought an amazing battle and are now in your heavenly home. Iona and Vic.
