    A lovely girl, gone far too soon. Memories of when the young girls were growing up, going out, having fun – and meeting at my house. Then moving on through their lives as young adults. My heart goes out to Dave and children, Lisa, and Marg and John, Bec’s family and friends

    May Bec always walk in Sunshine
    Where gentle breezes flow
    For the love she gave to everyone
    Will be forever treasured so

    Love, Lorraine Johnstone (McPherson)

    It looks like it’s going to be a little longer till I can wrap my arms around you and tell you how much of a blessing you have been to my life.
    Regret is a hard thing to live with so I plan to live my life with this not as my “goodbye” but my “see you when I get there”
    You have been and will always be a shining light in my life.
    All my love,

  19. Tenneale, Glenn & Kody Borchard on 26 May 2020 at 1:33 am

    For Rebecca, our precious Butterfly 🦋

    Butterfly, oh butterfly, you beautiful thing,
    You brought colour to our lives
    With the opening of your wing.

    Butterfly, oh butterfly, as delicate as lace,
    You brought light into our lives,
    With your innocence and grace.

    Butterfly, oh butterfly, fly high up in the air,
    You brought your love into our lives,
    And shared without a care.

    Butterfly, oh butterfly, so gentle in your flight,
    You brought a joy into our lives,
    And left it shining bright.

    So flutterby our butterfly, you fragile little thing.
    You changed our lives so suddenly,
    With the lightness of your wing.

    So flutterby our butterfly, too soon you are gone,
    You’ll be forever in our hearts,
    As our love for you goes on. 🦋

    ..our beautiful Bec.
    Our world will never again be quite as bright without you here.

    This past week has been especially difficult; and being able to finally accept that you’re gone – (in order to say ‘goodbye’) has been no less than heartbreaking.

    ..and so, Bec, it’s with a heavy heart that I now say farewell & wish you Godspeed. You’ve been a wonderful, caring and loyal friend to me & the bond that I shared with you and Dave was a blessing that made a real difference in my life. I will forever treasure our friendship; and will think of you with fond memories, warm feelings and a special place in my heart.

    Love always, Normn’B xo

  28. Sarah Perri on 27 May 2020 at 12:51 pm

    Beautiful on the inside and out. Bec you will continue to be loved by so many and will always be remembered for your infectious smile, your ability to make others feel like they could be themselves around you, your loyal and loving friendship and of course being a beautiful wife and mother. You were always so kind to me. Thank you for being such a caring friend to people that I love, and for taking care of them. I hope that you are free and at peace up there xx

  29. Uncle Steve & Aunty Marg on 28 May 2020 at 12:38 am

  39. Louise Llan on 28 May 2020 at 5:15 am

    Bec, we were all fortunate to meet you way back in July 2016 when we were all new mummas
    Our dinner and lunch catch ups will never be forgotten and never be the same. We will miss you terribly.
    We grew together, laughed together, we learnt to be new mum’s together
    Your light and smile will always shine in our hearts.
    Dave, we want you to know that your family will always be part of our mothers group circle. Our love and as support to you Jack & Charlie.
    Love always Louise, Dielle, Bianca, Simone, Melanie,Elana and Emily (Rowville Mummas 2016)

  40. Casey Neads on 28 May 2020 at 5:20 am

    I didn’t get to meet you, but I wish I did. I’ve heard so many beautiful things about you. If you were anything like your dad, I could imagine how much of a kind hearted beautiful person you were. Forever young, & forever in your dads arms. ❤️

  41. Julie Anne Longano on 28 May 2020 at 5:23 am

    We hadn’t touched base for a little while but that doesn’t change the memory of the first moment I saw you. The new girl at Brentwood Secondary College. The moment you walked into homegroup that morning… it was like the earth paused on its axis for a moment in time. Everyone was in awe. You handed your paperwork to the teacher pensively. “Bec Neads”. Confident but shy all at the same time. This girl with her progressive, signature stylish bob; long at the front shorter at the back. Popped school-shirt collar. Extra long sleeves. Pants. Lashes for days. I’m sure everyone who knew you would remember, almost palpably, the first moment they saw you… remember where they were, how you were, how it felt just to see you. Not everyone in the world has that impact on people.. thus we are all so deeply deeply affected by this – even for those of us who were once close but not so much in recent years. You were and will always be a light in this world.

  42. Belinda Salamone on 28 May 2020 at 7:11 am

    A Beautiful service for a Beautiful girl.
    Heartbreaking to hear of your passing. Condolences to your family, friends, husband and your precious children.

    Rest In Peace Bec.
    A beautiful person inside and out.
    I will forever remember the times we shared and smile that we were part of each others stories.
    Lots of love to your family
    Love 💕 Bec

  44. Daniel Rees on 28 May 2020 at 9:39 am

    I didn’t know you well Bec, only met a couple of times through your brother Chris and my sister Marin. But i know what impact you had on their lives and how important you were to both of them. You were a great sister and best friend to both Min and Chris and you will be sorely missed by your and my family. I hope you find peace now and can rest with your dad. Lots of love from Daniel

  45. Lyn Payet on 29 May 2020 at 4:57 am

    Our darling ray of Sunshine. Your beautiful smile made us all smile, Nothing will ever be the same without you in our lives Bec, We will remember the happy times we shared and speak of those times always with Dave, Jack and Charlie.
