    How do you put into a few sentences a tribute that is fitting for someone as special as my friend, Lyndal? I thought it would be easy enough, given that I’ve been chatting to her every day since she passed, telling her all the things I valued about her that I wished I told her more of when she was here. But it’s difficult to consolidate into words just how beautiful and amazing someone like my friend Lyndal is. I’ll give it my best shot.

    I was blessed to be able to call Lyndal a friend. We met when our boys became best mates at Primary School, and though I have since moved away some years ago, we have stayed in touch over the years and remained close. The first thing I noticed about Lyndal when our friendship was new, was just how much she loved her children, James and Stephanie. Her life was dedicated to them and she devoted all she had to make sure that her kids were supported, cared for and loved. She was the kind of mother I wish my own children had been fortunate enough to have! For the duration of James’s football and cricket pursuits, I was always so impressed with Lyndals dedication and determination to accompany James to all his practices and matches. It may sound like a small thing to some, but for a single mum holding down the fort, with little time or energy to spend on herself, I knew it was an act of pure love and self sacrifice. And over the years I have known Lyndal, that selflessness and devotion never waned, no matter how exhausted she felt or difficult life was, James and Stephanie were her pride and joy and always came first. Her dedication paid off too, because they are the loveliest, kind hearted people and an absolute tribute to their mum.

    But Lyndal wasn’t only a mother. She was a fiercely loyal friend who could always be relied on for a listening ear and unquestioning support. We would chat to each other over the phone once a month or so, sharing our disappointments and grievances, but always ending up having a good laugh about it all. That was so typically Lyndal. She never allowed herself to be defeated, no matter what difficulties she was facing. And over the years she has faced many struggles, but carried on stoically without any drama or fanfare. I always knew that if Lyndal complained about anything at all that it had to be serious, because she just wasn’t one to trouble others with her problems. Her typical behaviour was to mention something casually and then quickly downplay it so as not to cause too much alarm or concern. That was just her way and a reflection of who she was as a person – a strong, capable and resilient woman who never asked anything of anybody, but gave the best of herself to others always.

    The world feels suddenly like less of a place, knowing that Lyndal is no longer here with us. I am already deeply missing the sound of her voice, our rambling chats and muses on life and the belly laughs would always come with those chats. But I take comfort in the belief that wherever Lyndal is, that she is happy and at peace. Life hasn’t been easy for my beautiful friend, and it’s a small comfort to think she is finally getting the rest from the cares and worries of this world that she so greatly deserves. I know that Lyndal will never be far from her children and she will always be in my heart. I love you my friend and look forward to that day when we can catch up again.

Thank you beautiful for the 35+ years of friendship, celebrating your very pink appartement in Power street with a bottle of pink bubbles, then celebrating every item we purchased the same way .( even if it was a toaster) Getting ready to “hit the clubs “ and having way too much fun to go anywhere.
