My heart is breaking for the loss of your wonderful wife and life partner. Soft hugs, dear gentleman.
I'm so sorry for these difficult times you're going through.JANET (JENNY ) EGAN…..1944…2023.
“A LOVER, A MOTHER, A WIFE and a FRIEND”.
I guess it was written that we were destined to meet and spend our lives together’
Born in the same hospital two years apart, the same sister signed our birth certificates. Both our families were in the same re-settlement camp awaiting new housing. We were just one suburb apart in our teens, attended the same primary school, travelled to the same high school, and were finally connected by her brother and my sister and from that day forwarded were never parted and so it was for 60 years.
Married at Paramatta Registry Office and with her savings purchased our first block of land and built our first house. Three children later we found our first farm, sold our first house, and built another. Purchased our second farm, sold the first one and built our third house.
Our children all grew up and moved out and it was then we purchased our next farm in the Braidwood district. For a few years we travelled each weekend to this new farm and finally sold the second farm and moved into a little cottage about 30 km’s out of town. We soon became unhappy with the potential of the land and so we looked for and purchased our new farm and once again built our fourth house. Over a few years we added to the farm to the size it is now.
So, we could fund Jenny’s care we recently sold our third farm, but Jenny was having none of that, this strong and determined lady set her own path and so we are here today to wish her “goodbye”, but she will remain in our hearts forever................T,O.R, (Frank)
