You shone bright my dear sister and then you were gone. Maybe you weren't meant to stay long. If all the love and tears could have saved you you would have lived to be a very old lady.

Sincere condolences to Leon, Ash, Cherie and families. Wow what a beautiful service for Gillian she was definitely loved by so many as you can see by the attendance and the many of us on-line. I remember sitting with Gill at some retirement seminars just a few years back, planning our retirement and sharing so many stories together we laughed so hard that one day we would be “old”. You are now pain free and have your wings so fly high and be free xxxx

Gill. It’s hard to have a childhood memory that doesn’t have you and your family in it. The clatter of drums, the tuning of pipes. Your Dad hurrying us along, your mum being so kind. Of you winning all the cross country with me lagging behind. Of weddings and children and love and fun times. Missing you forever.

Gillian you will be missed! You giggled with me in high school and we shared many a deep and meaningful conversation in more recent years. You loved your family and friends dearly, remembering so many important details. You brought joy to those around you by playing the bagpipes and sharing your love of the farm and wildflowers growing there. You maintained an incredibly positive outlook in the face of life’s challenges. Deepest sympathy and love to Leon and family. Lee and Thomas Graf
