Helen We met you and Bill in 2001 when you joined the MBCM franchise. For many years it was obvious at our social functions that you loved to party - as did Philip and I. We got to know each other even better when we were at Board meetings together and I admired your ethics and dedication to the Company. It was a natural progression on each of our retirement. that you and I would go on to organise the MBCM Retirees Group which enabled many of us old Mbcm friends to keep in touch. Our last one just back in November last year. If only we'd known it was our last time together - we would have cherished it more- however how glad I am that we started that group and we will go on but will miss your cheery face. Our love to Bill, Jackie, Georgia and their families. Love Laraine and Philip.

We moved to Brisbane, you & Bill came up & we went to the rainforest.I will never forget that scream !when Kev& I turned around to find you jumping on Bill. You thought it was a spider on you when it was a leaf falling from a tree!! For my 40 you Bill & our trusty neighbors came & surprised me for my birthday!i was so humbled & great full for such wonderful friendships. Helen I wanted to bring in some of my photos of wedding I had done I n my Business. You where the one who kept persisting that I start a wedding business ! I took on the challenge because of your support & belief that I could do it. That is the kind of person you are, kind , caring , fun , strong, generous ,loving& intelligent are some of your attributes.when Kevin& I moved back here , it was so good to catch up with you & Bill & hoping to do more , but alas it was not going to be. I’m Happy I was able to spend a little time with you when you where Ill. Not knowing what was to come. Thank you to your family for giving me the Honour of arranging your flowers for your fairwell. There is a very big hole left in the World& many hearts, but when we start to see all the wonderful things That made up Helen we see the Bright Star!! Love you Helen Teresa& Kevin

Helen, We are so so sad,to say goodbye to you. We have always considered you to be a very special friend to us both. We cannot imagine never being able to spend time with you again, never being able to have a drink together and talk about what has happened in our lives since we last caught up. Helen you were such a beautiful person, so kind, so generous and always such a good friend. We are very thankful to have had you as a dear friend, a friend for over 40 years. To Bill, Jackie and Georgia, and families our hearts ache for you and we send you our love, we know that you have had to deal with unimaginable pain over the last 6 weeks, Helen would have been so proud of you all. To our dear friend Helen , we love you and will miss you so much. Rest in peace Helen xxxx

Oh Helen - my heart aches. It was 50 years ago when Bill first introduced Helen to his family. You were just 16. I was 10. You were our very first sister in law and you had me at ‘hello’. You have always been family. I don't ever remember a time when you have not been in our family. The last time we were all together as a family was this last Christmas. You had cooked a beautiful Christmas pudding. It was such a joyful day and the memory of it will stay with me forever. I am so grateful for that day. So many memories. Like the time 13 years ago, in 2004 when you and Bill came to live with me for 5 months while your house was being built. We learnt a lot about each other over those 5 months - but the most I learnt was the great love you and Bill had for each other. It was the best time and is one of my most cherished memories of you and Bill living with me - including Christmas eve when we were dressing up the Christmas Tree. We were dancing, belting out christmas carols, dancing around the christmas tree having the best bloody time. It is one of my most cherished memories. So many memories. Like the time when I broke up with my first boyfriend. I was 18 and devastated. You found me sitting on the back step of our house crying. You put your arms around me and comforted me like a protective mother. And you were just 24. I won't ever forget that memory, or the feeling of safety, and protection and love in that moment. You had an intuitiveness when someone else was hurting or needed comforting. Or the many times you picked me up at the airport coming home from one of my many trips. I remember coming back from England in 2009 and there you were on the other side of the gate, smiling and waving, it was so great to see your smiling face. And I stayed overnight at your house in Sunbury with fresh towels on the bed, and slippers and lots of comfort food. You always had an open heart, an open door, never turned anyone away. You loved taking care of people. You were a mother to all of us. So many memories. Memory is a wonderful thing because it lives. As we live, our memory of you Helen will live - in our hearts, our minds, and in our stories that we pass on to the next generation. Life does go on, we can't stop that, but it's just not ever going to be the same. I am going to miss you so much. Love ya Helly. xxx

Dearest Helen now at peace. Helen you were the dearest most friendliest person Annette and myself have ever met. You are truly one of a kind and now the world is worse off without you. You were truly an inspiration to all you met and everyone loved you so much. You were such a special wife for Bill and the best mum ever for Georgia and Jackie. You achieved so much in life and new how to do all you did with love and generosity. Helen to me you were really an incredible person, one of a kind and special in every regard. I love you Helen and Bill...taken way too early, and Bill be strong... believe me Helen will be missing you just as much and wanting you to continue on with th love and memories you both shared together forever
