  • To Murray and family

    Natalie Joy Anderson, what a women!!
    What an awesome way to pass on the words that are so hard to say at such a sad time.
    I am sure there are not many people in Alexandra that have not met Natalie, had the opportunity to talk with her, laugh, and just generally catch up on life. That is what Natalie was full of, Life.
    I always enjoyed the early mornings when we used to catch up at the Gym, talk about the kids and just laugh at each other.
    May the loss to your family will be filled with Natalie's loving memories, may they be what will get you all through this tough time and into the future.

  • What a great night we had on the Friday night, you looked so beautiful. We had some laughs, as always, and we will miss that - a lot. You were one of the first people I met moving to Alex and I always came away from our chats feeling uplifted. You were always smiling and cheery and our hearts are in tatters that this has happened and our thoughts are constantly with Ashleigh, Matt and Murray.We will never forget you, you truly were a beautiful person, inside and out.

  • Dear Natalie

    My memories of going through school together will never fade - you were a beautiful person inside and out. I still laugh, like you used to, how we both went from Flockton to Anderson and Anderton and although we only caught up once a year it was always great to hear about you and your family. You are taken far to early - rest in peace. Love Sharyn xxxxx

    Hi Natalie

    I will miss the walks we had planned, Rob Roy Glacier, Cromwell at Labour Weekend and some of the others I was going to introduce you to. The Relay for Life memories will remain with me and the Clyde event will become a regular walk I will do for you. Love and best wishes from Pauline McAlpine (the Old girl)

    I just heard the terrible news today and can't believe it. What a terrible loss to you all and a big hole will be left in your lives, but we all have such wonderful memories, that can never be taken away. All those wonderful times in Jaycees. Natalie was such a welcoming, delightful, happy, caring, sincere person, we will all miss her very much.
    Know that we are all thinking of you at this very sad time and our love is with you.

    So shocked and sorry to hear about the tragic loss of such a beautiful wife and mother. Personality plus with energy and charisma - she made us all feel so welcome and at home when we visited Alex for the first time two years ago. I loved her hair and how her personality oozed out of her - simiply a great person.
    My heart goes out to you all at this sad time and I send my thoughts and deepest sympathy.
