Mick and I went to the game last night with Vicki, Nicole, Piper, Chael and little Micky. Great game but too stressful to enjoy. Have you caught up with the fact that your son is now a Bulldogs supporter? True. Still miss you so much mum - Love Susan"

"I never realised until we lost you Mum, the weeks of buildup and advertising there is for Mother's Day. Before we lost you I loved all of the hype because it was my special day too.
Now in the weeks leading up to it I find myself drawn to the displays at the supermarket and stand reading all of the cards until I hear you say "Come on Beverly, the shopping is not going to do itself." That's what you always did Mum, you drew on your inner strength & got on with life.
But I'm tired of being strong Mum, tonight I went back to the display & read every one of those cards & looked at all of the gifts while my icecream melted in the trolley.
Love you Mum & miss you so very much."

We all went to Etihad Stadium to watch the wonderful Western Bulldogs defeat Freo. Mick, Vicki, Matthew and Jayden joined us. You are not going to believe this Mum but Michael was decked out in his Footscray best - jumper, scarf etc. He has decided to ditch Port Adelaide and the prodigal son has returned home to be a doggies supporter. I just knew that you would be impressed Mum - Love Susan"

Michael says "That time of year again".
When I mentioned it to Susan earlier she said "Oh for Gods sake this happens 4 times a year".
I was soon able to make her feel bad by telling her that I wished you were here to say it to you every day.
By the way Mum, you need to do something about that Hypochondriac, just because she's tired she thinks she might have Glandular Fever !!
Love you & miss you."

"When Michael read my last post he sent me a text message that read
"I remember Coles cafeteria, where the hell is Menzies?"
I reminded him that we referred to Grannies dining room when she lived on Sydney Road as Menzies Restaurant. The table would be set with the good linen, finest dinner set & silver cutlery, we also had to arrive at the table with our very best manners, it was always a very special treat for us. His next text to me was "Good, I thought I got pie & chips while you had crayfish". Michael can always give me a good belly laugh by just being himself."

This tribute was added by Bev Petro on 15th September 2015

"When I remember my childhood, I remember that my Mother gave it her all. She worried too much, she failed at times and she did not always get it right........ but she tried her hardest to teach us about kindness, love, compassion, honesty and dining at Menzies. Even if she had to learn from her own mistakes she loved us enough to keep going, even when things seemed hopeless, even when life knocked her down. We remember her as the Woman who always got back up."

I must admit though she is right i have too much time on my hands and need shopping, travel and fast cars etc to keep me occupied but again Bev has been caught up in her speech and forgot to leave the lotto numbers 2, 10, 16, 17, 27, 33, 43. but you can always count on me.

"OK Mum, I need some help with Michael, he is out of control. What should have just been an ordinary Rabbit, Rabbits, Rabbits Day has turned into a day of research for him. He is no longer just satisfied to see who is "the first to get who", because he lost today he has done a fair bit of research and has been emailing me the origins of "Rabbits, Rabbits, Rabbits". I think he is trying to get one up on me because now he has the knowledge he also has the power!!!!
What he has Mum is too much time on his hands. So this is where your help comes in.................................
We need to occupy his time, so I was thinking......... If we could win Tattslotto a whole new world would open up for him, shopping, travel etc.
Just putting it out there Mum."

"Mother's Day started off good for me Mum, that is until I went to the supermarket. I was looking at all the bouquets of flowers and thinking how lovely they were when I suddenly realised that I didn't have a mother to give them to, Ada has left us also now so the whole day was such a struggle for me. Of course my defective tear ducts then went in to overdrive, I miss you so much Mum. Happy Mother's Day"

Love goes on.

"I don't remember the first time you held me or when I first heard your voice. Although I do know you loved me without question, no matter what I did. I always knew that your love was ever-constant, unlimited, and forever.
You were a remarkable woman who accomplished so much as a strong woman in a man's world. You were told that you couldn't raise 4 children on your own but you made sure you proved any doubters wrong. You faced any obstacle in your way with selfless determination to make our world a better place. You worked so hard and achieved so much............... I often wondered how other families got by without you as the head.
Thank you for a lifetime of loving me, for believing in me and for putting my hopes, my dreams, and my needs ahead of your own.
Happy Mother's Day Mum."

"Hi Mum have been searching for weeks now for a special song for you for Mother's day, what a journey that has been, some made me laugh, some made me cry and some just made me scared of what Susan would say.
She gave me a dressing down when we changed the background music from "Unchained Melody ". I think this one will get her approval Mum because it touched my heart. I know patience wasn't one of your strong points (  Love Was ) but you need to listen for 10 seconds for the song to start. Love The Boy xox."

"Hi Mum, As the "Goody Two Shoes" of the family I should have stopped Michael from carving your name in the love heart of the tree - but I didn't, I thought it was a lovely gesture. Heaven help us if they ever decide to chop that tree down. We will all be chained to it in protest!! I think about you every day, mostly happy thoughts Mum but sometimes there is still a tear or two. Love you Mum - from your Butterfly, Susan"

"A little note below of my day spent in Loxton with Michael,Julie and Adam.Relating to the picture uploaded yesterday,    "The Boys" surrogate grave Loxton,S.A., Anastasia an infant (Russian) baby girl. In memory of our darling mother we visited Loxton rose garden and cut roses to make the posie, .Toasted our mother with Baileys and simply took joy in how lucky we are to be "Stasia"s Kids" Michael also uploaded one of your most loved songs, "Tie a Yellow Ribbon around the Old Oak Tree"", Jeepers Creepers mum another song about the "Boy" and they call me "Precious" smile emoticon I don't only think of you every day Mum, we chat along as we always did! Until we meet again xxxxxxxxxx"

Margie and Adam are here this year so we borrowed some roses from the Loxton rose garden and off we went with a bottle of Baileys and our shot glasses. Hope to see you next christmas i miss you so much Mum. Love forever the BOY. xox."

"Recently I watched a very old movie called "Carve Her Name With Pride". Today I remembered Michael carving your name in a tree at the hospital on the day you left us. Yes, yes, I know we shouldn't have done it but you would have taken such pride in the loving gesture. Later that day when I arrived home after being at the hospital for 5 days, I discovered that my side of the street had new footpaths laid. I saw this as an omen so carved your name in the freshly laid path.
I'm a bit OCD and always think things should be done in 3's, this bothered me today because we only carved your name twice. Then I realised that you also carved your name in my heart.
I can't believe that 3 years has pasted since we lost you but rather than dwell on that, I give thanks that "we had you"."

"Rabbits Rabbits Rabbits Mum. Yes, Michael has the right date this time. He said it's no good getting older if you don't get smarter too. Although I know in preparation for this he downloaded all of the world times & time zones to his computer to make sure he didn't get it wrong. Yes Mum, technology & a bit of over kill, he has certainly come a long way from long nights trying to get him to learn his spelling words for the next day of school lessons................
I can still see you drawing pictures next to all the words & going over it  & over it only for him to say "shed" instead of "garage". Hmmmm was it his bad spelling or perhaps your drawings?"

                 Mum's Message From Heaven

I see you my darlings, all the time,
I know everything you do.
Would you believe, my dearest children
I’m even closer now to you!
I can see inside your minds,
Indeed, inside your hearts,
I even know you better now,
Than I did before, sweethearts.
I’ve always loved you – you know that,
But maybe now I love you more,
I love the adults that you’ve become,
Just as I loved the child before.
I know how much you miss me,
Well, I surely miss you, too.
I miss our talking and our laughing,
And all we used to do.
Whether you are six or sixty,
You’ll always be my precious child.
You’re the babies that I carried
And the adults that helped me smile.
What you need to understand,
Though death has taken me away,
Is that I’ve not left you, my darlings.
I am still with you today.
My family, I could never leave you;
God, of course, would not want that.
Physically, we are apart,
But our hearts are still attached.
I love you all the time,
You cannot get away from me.
That’s the way a Mother is
Right until eternity.
Every day I’m with you
I see you from above,
And I want for you to know
How very much you’re dearly loved."

"Hi Mum,
Just a quick note to remind you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You still haven't sent us the tattslotto numbers. Before you left us we got Bev to ask you to send us the numbers when you got to Heaven. We all knew that Bev was probably the only one with enough courage to ask you without shocking you about knowing that you would soon be in a position to do just that. If you remember Mum, you agreed to this plan. We have been very patient but as it is my birthday tomorrow I think the time has come for you to live up to your end of the bargain. Just putting it out there Mum, we know you will come through.
If you're having a problem getting the numbers to us Mum, use these ones:

"Hi Mum,
Thought there may be a shortage of flowers in Heaven being Mother's Day so I gathered a bunch for Michael & left them for you.
The past 2 years I didn't enjoy Mother's Day because I ached so much to have you with us, it just seemed a hard reminder that you weren't.
This year was different, I loved the build up to Mother's Day. For weeks now I was drawn to the card displays in the supermarket. I would read them with a smile, thinking of you.
This Mother's Day was for you Mum, not for me.
You didn't just leave footprints on our hearts Mum, you left stomp marks!
Love you and miss you Mum. So happy you were ours."

"If Roses grow in Heaven,
Lord please pick a bunch for me,
Place them in my Mother's arms
and tell her they're from me.
Tell her I love her and miss her,
and when she turns to smile,
place a kiss upon her cheek
and hold her for awhile.
Happy Mothers Day Mum.
     Love you Forever
          The Boy
             XOX"

"My dear Mum, when Mick & I visited you late afternoon last Thursday (your 2nd anniversary) we were very surprised to see so many bunches of flowers and I thought to myself, Mum is going to put on "a good show". I called Bev to tell her about this and she said that she had taken a lunch break to visit you. Bev NEVER takes a lunch break - just goes to show how much she loves you Mum. She told me Margaret & the Boys had been there at the same time, must have been quite a party Mum because there were 3 little empty bottles of Baileys there. Its been 2 years now but it has gone so fast although I always feel you with me. Love Susan."

"Mum thinking of you today as i do every day but today i had to laugh remembering the late night visit from Susan and Bev and you trying to get them out about 1am. When they finally did go they kept coming back through the back gate. You said to me Michael go and lock the back gate, front and back door's and don't let them back in again my stomach can't handle the laughter.So many memories i will have forever.
          Love You Always
                The Boy

"At first I was worried because you filled my thoughts all day every day. Then I was worried because I thought you wouldn't fill my thoughts often enough. Now I get enormous pleasure because you pop into my thoughts so often. It just makes me feel good now Mum, puts a smile in my heart, thoughts of you fill me with happiness."

You are the last one I think of before I go to sleep at night. You were such an important part of our lives & that hasn't changed. Happy 80th Birthday Mum.

"Hi Mum, today would have been your 80th Birthday, and I wish you were here. I wish that heaven had a phone so I could call you and hear your voice just one more time. I'm doing okay, but life will never have the importance or be the same without you.xox"

"My angel up in heaven, I wanted you to know,
I feel you watching over me, everywhere I go.
I wish you were with me, but that can never be,
Memories of you in my heart, that only I can see.
My angel up in heaven, I hope you understand,
That I would give anything, if I could hold your hand.
I’d hold you oh so tightly, and never let you go,
And all the love inside of me, to you I would show.
My angel"

"Grandma I remember times at rosebud when you would dress us up for the fancy dress competition. There was one costume that took you a lot of time to do which was me as a christmas cracker, I stood on the table for a long time getting pricked by the pins and kept getting told to hold still. Then finally you were done masterpiece complete, well as it was done i needed to pee no holes in it.."

"You were a strong and courageous woman in all things in life. The early years were particularly hard for you, but you made sure we never knew and we didn’t miss out on anything. We were teenagers before we found we were poor! We thought we were the rich kids, what a shock for us.We were all so very lucky to have been given the gift of you as our Mum. With you we always felt safe and loved."

"AN IRISH FAREWELL


God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be.
So he put his arms around you and whispered “come to me”.  With tearful eyes we watched you, and saw you pass away. Although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, he only takes the best."

"My Beautiful Mum. I still find it hard to believe you're gone and harder to think of you without a tear but I know we will see each other again one day. Mum I am so glad we spent your last few months together, memories that will never leave my heart. I LOVE YOU DARLING  always and forever Michael xox."
