Dearest Anne, Anthony, Martin, Clare and Ruth and all of your families. Deepest condolences on the passing of your remarkable and incredible mother. The Homes Family remember her with great fondness, wonderful memories and steadfast friendship. Your mum was present in so many ways, parish, school, community, youth group and so much more. We all like to think that she and our mum Mary Homes will be having a good old yarn now and that she is reunited with your darling dad. Love always, Chris and Paolo Arman and the Homes family xxxx

But would always be there for anyone in need, my love to all the cousins, Mary at peace in her spiritual home god bless Mary love from your neice cathy.


Anne Nocka -

Dearest mum, You presented yourself to everyone who came into contact with you in many ways; sister, auntie, mentor, friend, parishioner, volunteer, lobbyist, advocate plus more. But to me you were and will always be my mum and best friend. I feel so privileged to be a part of you and dad's lives and feel comforted in that you both are together again. The memories created over the years will live on forever not only in my contacts with Oscar, Annie, Isaac, Maggie, Anthony, Clare, Martin and Ruth, but also through our love for knitting and sewing. I miss our coffee sessions at the Parade and Mary MacKillop Care Flora MacDonald home. Till we meet again, I love you to the moon and back, mum. Anne xo
