STONE MELVA It is with a very heavy heart we have lost a Mother and Grandmother.

A mother's love is always with her children. Losing a mother is one of the deepest sorrows a heart can know. But her goodness, her caring, and her wisdom live on - like a legacy of love that will always be with you. May that love surround you now and give you peace.

R.I.P Mum you will be very sadly missed

Kevin, Leah, Macey, Olivia and Piper

STONE (Melva):

We say farewell to beautiful Melva - who leaves behind, Daughter - Kerry, Son in Law - Pete, Grandaughter - Jaslyn, and Great Grandchildren, Isabella and Lennox

We are sending a dove to heaven with a parcel on its wings... Be careful when you open it - it's full of beautiful things.

Inside are a million kisses, wrapped in a million hugs to say how much we miss you and to send you all our love.

We hold you close within our hearts and there you will remain - to walk with us throughout our lives until we meet again.

Forever and always our love

Kerry, Pete and Jaslyn

STONE (Melva):

My Mum - My Best Friend - You were amazing, an absolute warrior, a shining example and we won't forget OAM and Ambassador RFDS WA. You touched the hearts of everyone you met.

For me, you were more than my Mum, you were my best friend, you have been my rock for so long - a tower of strength, always gently steering me in the right direction.

I am not sure how to live in this world without you, we have been through so much together.

I will take strength in your teachings, love in your kind touch, try to be wise from your words. As you have asked, I will smile through my tears for you and I know you are always by my side and in my heart.

Forever and always, your daughter and best friend, Kerry Louise

  • STONE OAM MELVA We have known each other for 25 years after Melva asked me to help her publish "Red Dust in Her Veins" to raise funds for the RFDS. We have been friends ever since. Never a cross word. She went through many challenges but kept positive and truly loved her extended family. My particular sympathies to Alan, Olga, Graeme, Kevin, Leah, Kerry and Pete - I know you are hurting. Love Erica Smyth
