    Dear Aimee, Jo, Rich, Andrew, John and Family,
    I am so sorry for the loss of your dear Kathy. I have so many fond memories with your family from Templestowe and Malaysia that Kathy always included me in. Your Mum was always supporting creativity, fun times and good food.
    I hope Wednesday is a celebration of her wonderful life. I am sorry I can’t be there in person.
    All my love,
