Special memories of our Dutch morning teas and chatter over yummy food and in the company of life long friends. Len was a good friend to my parents, Ann and Henk from Bundaberg and after Mum passed away, I continued the traditional morning tea and special event gatherings ensuring Pa continued with those connections. Len accompanied Mum to Garden Club outings, always arriving home tired but with smiles and more plants. We had many chats over the phone talking about current situations. Len did take pride over her appearance and I always admired her hands. She was welcoming, warm and loved. R.I.P. Len. Thank you for your friendship. Cynthia and Dave

Dear family,
Watching you saying goodbye to your mum and grandma and telling the story of her life was so beautiful and full of love and that is also the memory i have of “tante Len”. A very strong and loving woman. We will never forget her.
Love Peter, Sylvia and family
