  1. Dearest Anna. Our friendship started in Brunswick and continued on our sea change. I will miss our weekly coffee catch ups talking about what veggies we will plant and if the seeds are going to germinate. Picking up the bags of chook manure on our way home. My trips to Drysdale will always remind me of you! I have the lovely plant you gave me and I was so happy to send you the photo of it in flower recently so I will always have that connection.
    Was hard for me to watch your journey as I watched my mother’s months previous.
    Missing you

  15. Anna feel like I’m in the middle of a nightmare & trying desperately to wake up. You spoilt me rotten with your endless supply of figs & passionfruit. Going to miss our endless chats great laughter our sick jokes. I’m going to miss seeing that crazy bike with the plastics flowers tied up around the handlebars. Going to miss the different shades of reds in your hair dyes. Going to miss all of you but just know that you will live on in my heart. No more pain now Anna. Finally at peace. Take care. Susie.
