Our deepest sympathy to all the family..Gay and I shared such wonderful times together - going back to the 60's working together at Dominion Breweries , to later living in Sydney at the same time - then back in NZ attending Women's Luncheon Club together. So glad that Gay no longer has to suffer and can join her Vaughan.
With Our Love

Love and thoughts with you Max and Pam and family, sad but a blessing Gay is now in peace and with Vaughn and parents. Would of loved to be there to say good bye but wasn't to be so glad we had made to visit her when she was able to know us and enjoy our visit. Gay has been part of my life and I have lots of memories of times with her.

Love cousin Annette xx

Kia ora Max, Pam and family
Sending my love and thoughts to you all. I believe Gay's funeral is to be private, I hope day goes well and you are all well. I notice they have Gay's year of birth incorrect you may like to ask them to correct it.
Take care and Gay now at peace with Vaughan xoxox
