  8. Dear Noah & Evie
    I’ll always remember the first time I met your Mumma. It was about 8 years ago, in 2011, we were working at Optus and she bounced up to my desk so full of energy, positive, and friendly. Everybody liked working with Lou, and she wasn’t just fun to be around, your Mumma was a really hard worker and really good at her job. I haven’t seen her since she left Optus to have you Noah, but we’ve kept in contact through Facebook and watched each other’s families grow. About a year ago she saw that I’d been volunteering at a kitchen providing meals for homeless people. Given what she was going through I thought it was amazing that she could even think about giving up her time to help others. Just an example of the kind of person she was. She said in her reply to me that after the year she’d been through it just made her want to do this kind of thing more.
    I’m out of the country at the moment so won’t be there to celebrate your Mumma’s life today. I’m thinking of you both and just wanted to give you my memories of your Mumma. Big hugs Genevieve xxx

    • Hi Genevieve, thanks for such a nice message. It’s good that these threads can be preserved for the kids to read at some stage in the future. These messages will be little building blocks that ensure they grow into special people like their mum. x
