Lovely memories of Mel and clothes. Working with her in the Westminster clothes stall for over 8 years and frequenting her wonderful home wardrobe. I will remember her as always looking fabulous and smiling from ear to ear. Westminster Mothers lunches, Melb cup lunches, Dinners and Balls, all so much fun. Sadness fills me. 💔

Sending you all our thoughts and love from Melbourne We were so saddened to hear of this tragic news Melia and I were at Calisthenics together in Primary School in Bellevue Heights and we had so much fun dressing up for our annual concerts that our Mums had cleverly made for us - especially the space suit ones and putting on that leg tan ! 😂 We also spent many days & nights practicing our moves, singing & performing with our hair brushes putting on concerts in our parents lounge rooms with Donna & Sarah (deceased) for our families who became very precious lifelong friends x
