Today I randomly picked up the NZ Herald...and saw Julies notice. It is years since I have seen Julie, and the Yerex family siblings. They lived next door to my Gran: Jo Keiller in Churchill Road Tauranga, sandwiched between the Denby family and Gran. Max was always tricking my Gran that he had real bannanas growing in his palm tree. They were fun days.
I recall Julies excitement when she and Barry announced their engagement, and I went into Grans garden and picked a huge bunch of violets, to take to her... we all had a few drinks to celebrate the occasion! Just seems like yesterday, a lovely memory. I remember her bubbly excitement as she faced the prospect of marriage.
Kindest wishes to the family, Rosemary Sloman

So sorry to hear the sad news of your mum/grandmother passing away, Aunty Julie. We fondly recall Rob / Dad talking about their childhood together and hope they are now both having a giggle on the other side. We also have many happy memories that will stay with us. Sending lots of love and will join you at the service from Helsinki tomorrow morning.
