Funeral Notice

  1. Roma, I have been reflecting on your impact on my life over the last 40 years or so. I have always appreciated your care, advice, cheekiness and ability to have a joke. I have reminisced on my teenage years with Lachlan and yourself and the many Christmases we spent together. I loved coming to Ballarat and catching up with you. There will always be a special place in my heart for you.
