  2. To all my cousins in Bundaberg, I know your hearts are heavy right now, my deepest sympathy to you all. Aunty Ev was so loved by Mum (Aunty Eil) and me. She will be sadly missed but will always be in my heart. I will treasure the memories we spent together and will miss our chats filled with laughter and many giggles. She was a pure soul who just gave of herself to all her family who she cherished so much, so my thoughts are with you all at this time

  3. Evy was one of the most kind, generous , unassuming, and courageous souls to have graced this earth . To her , her children , their children and their children were the centre of her Universe .
    She would want you all to love and support each other .
    Remember , I have no doubt , she will be quietly sitting up there on her fluffy white cloud watching you all .
    Much love and understanding of your broken hearts .

    ❤️😇❤️ Such a beautiful and loving soul… Granny always made me feel like I belonged. She encouraged me to follow my dreams…one of the last things she ever said to me. 💔. Family is not limited by blood… family can be anyone with whom you share great love and appreciation. Granny always loved us like her own… and I will forever miss that. 💔 I love you Granny, and I promise you… I’ll do my best to look after the family… to show them the love you showed us. ❤️😇❤️May you be the most loved angel in heaven, and until we meet again… please know my dreams are being followed.

  6. Evie, I’m so sorry you had to go before I had a chance to say goodbye. My memories of you dear girl, are of love, caring, sharing, and good times laughs, now you have gone leaving me with a hole in my heart. I am so proud to have been a son-in-law of yours. I’m already missing you more than I care to admit. I’ll say a prayer, and light a candle for you. Bye, my dear Granny, Love, Karl.
