My mum came to New Zealand - we took her horse riding - bumpy jumping and drove around New Zealand in a camper van - we flew over the shot over in speed boats not really her style more Brandi’s Sarah’s or Emily’s I imagine.
My first ever memory of Mum was how she hugged, when she hugged you, you certainly felt safe and warm no words could describe the energy that came from a hug from Mum and when she said she loved me it brought a tear to my eye and I believed it. I’ll remember you when you were in NZ warm caring and just beautiful that’s how I’ll remember you.
I missed that women I met in NZ
You were funny, beautiful
And a treasured gem of my Gran’s
I wish you a safe journey
Be at peace
To my family my condolences May your memories and prayers bring comfort.
Mary Mooring (eldest child of Marion Mooring Jones)
