  1. Just a small time knowing you, but, still recall the Joy and Laughter of those moments. You and Sarah speaking the pidgeon english, and most of all being our friend.

    Small moments big memories that have stayed with me, from a special person.

  2. Dear Deborah

    You have left far too early.

    We will miss your lovely smile and quirky sense of humour. We are greatly saddened that there will be no more pleasurable moments when we suddenly and unexpectedly spot you at a family gathering and are able to say “hello” and catch up.

    We also thank you for reaching out to all of us and especially Mike and Greg with whom you had a special closeness.

    We admire you for choosing to support those less fortunate than yourself.

    You were much loved and will be missed by all the Bonyhady’s.

    Our sympathies, love and hugs to Elizabeth and Max, Doug and Greer, your sisters and their families.

    With our love,

    Rae, Bruce, Mike, Greg, Simon and Steph
