  • Muzz, Ashleigh and Matt,

    Natalie was a true Angel, she lived a lifetime in a few short years.. more than most people ever experience, and that beautiful, sweet angel, wife and mother, touched so many lives..during her time on earth.. she loved life and lived it and shared to the max, We are so pleased we got to share some fun times with you both..It is so hard to lose someone you love, and I can't begin to imagine how you will fill the void left by Natalie, she earned her wings and was called to heaven... and I can imagine her being the prettiest, most dazzling, smiling Pinkest Angel in Heaven... We will all miss her dearly, and every time we see pink, we will remember our beautiful friend..Natalie..

    What wonderful tributes to Natalie on Thurs. They reminded me of a lunch we both got. Nat standing waiting on her ice chocolate and I had got cheese & pineapple sammy and also ordered an ice chocolate. "Snap". She said "I ordered it with blue top but they made it with green" don't you hate that watered down excuse. "Me too cos it just doesn't taste the same"! When it was ready she commented on the green top and they offered to make another but in true Nat style she accepted the lesser version in her usual style and grace and big smile! It must be the rural thing it just doesn't taste right if its not the real thing!
    Knowing that so many people share in this sad time and the memories you have help your find strength to go on over the coming weeks.
    Such a beautiful lady in pink!

  • To Natalie's family and friends

    So sorry to hear the tragic news. Natalie was such an incredibly lovely person. I would rave to my workmates about my wonderful insurance lady down in Alex and was so stoked to meet her when I was down home at Easter time. As beautiful in person as she was over the phone.

    She was always so kind and interested in other people and their lives and it's so unfair that such a wonderful human being has been taken away. Just does not make sense. She has left wonderful memories for people that knew her well and for just random people like myself whom she touched along the way.
    Thoughts are with you all.

    Natalie would have been so extremely proud of you all yesterday. You were just so amazing & truly courageous. It was the most wonderful & moving celebration of NATS life.

    It doesn't make it any easier to bare life without her, but she is an ANGEL & will be watching over you & us all forever.

    With Lots of Love & special hugs

    Sorry we were unable to pay respects yesterday, have been told it was a beautful tribute.
    Our thoughts have been with the 3 of you and your families all week, moving through the formalities is such a tough one. We will be thinking of you still over the coming weeks, wishing you a little breathing space as you figure out how to move forward from here - in your own way, your own time.
    Take good care of each other.

    Kindest Regards

  • To Murray Ashleigh, Matt & extended Family

    Our thoughts are with you at this sad time.

    Life can be so unfair when a loved one is taken from us. Natalie was such a lovely out-going person, so vivacious and beautiful (The Lady in Pink) – A Wife, Mother, Daughter, Granddaughter, Aunty and Friend. She was such a unique individual, so kind and caring and always up for a chat. You have left an impression on us all and your memory will be everlasting.

    You maybe gone but will never be forgotten.

    Rest in Peace Nat
