    Valerie, a special gracious lady. I remember with fondness our visits at Buln Buln and you visiting me for afternoon tea at Darnum. Rest in peace. I know you will be missed by your grandchildren James, Erin and Glen and although your daughter Karin is many miles away you will always be in her heart.
    Sleep tight, God bless.

    Dear Valerie, you were a kind, loving wife, mother and grandmother. Dad and you shared a very special relationship. You were his soulmate, best friend and biggest supporter and he yours. You were a great team,caring and looking out for each other, right up to the end. I thank you for the loving and caring relationship you shared with Made, myself and Aaron. We will remember the happy times spent with you and Dad forever. Rest in peace dear Valerie, love always.

    Sister to Nola and sister in law to Bob, aunt to Sharon and Craig. Our time visiting you and Ian together in Drouin, Buln Buln and Warragul will always be fondly remembered.

  4. Allison, Mike, Claire, Gus & Molly Freeman says:

    Dear Mum, you were Dad’s soulmate. His side kick & partner in crime. You supported each other and were the love of each others lives. Thank you for being my Mum, Mike’s mother in law and a very special Nana to Claire, Gus & Molly. We will continue to watch out for Dad as we watched out for you while you were with us. We will always remember the happy times spent together as a family – especially over a shared meal chatting about life and the adventures we were having. I wish you’d written down your lemon cheesecake recipe as I cannot replicate it! May you rest peacefully now and know how loved you are. We will miss you. God has you now.

    Dear Valerie, first I would like to thank you for your beautiful daughter Allison, now my daughter in law. Mike chose wisely. You and Ian have been a part of our lives for 16+ years, with many shared meals and times together. And of course the delight and pride we took in our shared grandchildren, Claire, Gus and Molly.
    May your soul Rest In Peace now Valerie
