    To my beautiful Mum,
    Words can not convey how sad l am, how much l miss you and what a big hole you have left in my heart and life that no- one can fill.
    You were my rock, my confidant and my boxing bag.
    You never turned me away no matter how angry l was with you or what we said to each other.
    I really loved that about you and l always felt free to be myself with you, even if you were a pain and told me what to do!
    We spent a long time together during covid and even tho it was trying for both of us l would never change a thing.l shared some precious time with you.
    We have had some great times too. I will never forget our time in Japan. I don’t know how l would have ever got through it without you.
    Once again you were there when l had Hana and l needed you.
    I love you and l know you are with me, all around me and that gives me so much peace.
    I’m sure Dad was there to greet you with a huge bear hug, grinning from ear to ear saying its about bloody time!!!

    Mrs Tom’s was a very special part of my life for over 50 years. I have wonderful memories of her when Janine and I were growing up. I was blessed to have her in my life.

    A beautiful person and wonderful mother to my dearest friend Janine, who I know will miss Jean very much, am thinking what a huge loss she will be to all her family, Jean was always interested to hear what Janine’s friends were up to and always had a sense of humour when I spoke to her . Hope at peace now ❤️

    I am fortunate to have known Mrs Toms for many years. Her daughter, and my good friend, Janine, and I went to school together. I remember days by the family pool and sleepovers. Mrs Toms was always there for us, advising and offering words of wisdom. What a wonderful, long life Mrs Toms had, leaving us all with so many memories to cherish. She will be sadly missed by her family.

    So sad that you are gone and walked on the other side of life Auntie Jean.
    You will be sadly missed by All your loved ones , family and friends.

    You and Uncle Derek have always been so kind and wonderful to me. I will never forget that as you have both treated me as one of your girls.

    Murray and I wish you a beautiful journey along the way, among the lovely surroundings towards the stairwell to the pearly gates with Uncle Derek holding the gate open for you.

    Have another wonderful life with Uncle Derek up in Heaven.

    I have many happy memories of times spent with Janine and her family over the years. Mrs Toms was always around feeding us, offering advice, picking us up from parties and joining in the fun. She was a lovely lady who will be sadly missed.

    One of the benefits of marrying into the Walker family all those decades ago, was the people I came to know. Jean was one of them. We often crossed paths at clan gatherings. When I think of her, I think of someone elegant, articulate, intelligent, kind – and a lot of fun. She was quite a lady. To Janine, David and their families, and to Jean’s extended family, we send our love and condolences. She will remain in your hearts and has left you with such beautiful memories. Colin, Kerrie and family. 🙏😢🌹🌹

    I have happy memories of Jean, much loved by her family and diligently cared for by Janine. In 2014 Jean and I became facebook friends, and I was delighted to share my travels with her to the Middle East and Europe. Rest in Peace. xxxx

    My memories of Aunty Jean are of a fun loving woman with a bit of mischief in her heart. Even though we lived at opposite ends of the earth, when we met up in England and Australia, I felt that I had a much closer relationship with her than the distance allowed. We shared a like for crafting and I will miss not only her but her hand made cards. Much love to you all. She will be terribly missed.

    Dear Aunty Jean, what a huge hole you have left behind as you catch up with Uncle Derek ! We didn’t know you that well as we are on opposite sides of the world but when we did catch up your wit and sense of humour shone. Our love and sincere condolences to Janine, David and the family at this sad time but share your many memories with those little girls that she was so thrilled to tell us about. Lucy, Andrew and family.

    Dear Jean,
    Such fond memories of your house with the Asano women, especially the lemon tree. It was a pleasure getting to know you.
    Rest easy whilst your legacy lives on.
