  2. To Paul, Luci, Felicity and family,

    Halina was a best friend and confidante for many years, She was beautiful, elegant, graceful, constant, faithful and true. She always searched for laughter, and found it everywhere. She loved everyone to share her happiness whenever it came along, and we remember so many times when this happened – parties, holidays, weekends, nights out, and meals throughout the years together. She was a great cook, and we shared uproarious laughter at Mary’s cooking efforts.

    It was obvious that she delighted in her children, her grandchildren and of course you, Paul We were lucky enough to see your romance blossom, and we loved you both along the way.

    She made everything special, and always laughed, sympathised and empathised throughout our lives together as friends. We will miss her more than we can find the words to say.

    Goodbye, darling Halina. We will never forget you.

  10. Dear Paul, Luci, Felicity and families
    My friendship began with Halina when I became Link Inspector to her school. This professional relationship soon developed into a close friendship. She was a wonderful, caring, considerate lady who saw the best in everyone and was so easy to like and respect.
    Her warmth radiated and her sense of fun and laughter lifted all our spirits. That memory will always be there.
    My thoughts are with you at this time

  11. Dear Halina,

    I am deeply saddened by your passing and I will miss you terribly. You made me feel so unbelievably welcome as the new and youngest member of the WI, five years ago, and you had such a warm nature and a zest for life and fun. I will always remember you for your immensely positive energy and compassion. You were truly a beautiful person and I will never ever forget you.

    My thoughts are with Paul and your family.

    Halina made everything better. Always.

  37. Dear Paul, Luci, Felicity, Richard and all the family,
    We send you all our deepest love and sympathy.
    Today was a day that none of us wanted to happen, but the sun shone brightly and the vibrant colours of red and white lifted our hearts as we said goodbye to our dearest Halina.
    Every word spoken told of her love for her family, her kindness, her laughter and her ability to bring people together. We spoke of her great vocation as a teacher, her mischievous smile and her wonderful sense of humour, the sparkle she bought to every party and of the enormous contribution she made in our community. She was special to so many people in so many different ways.
    Small wonder we will all miss her so very much…
    God bless.

  43. Dear Paul, Luci, Felicity and Family.

    I had the pleasure of being taught by Halina (Mrs Richards) at St Joseph’s in 1988-89. Without a doubt, she was my favourite teacher of all my school years – kind, compassionate and exciting, interested in what we were learning. She was a wonderful person and I’m really sad to hear of her passing. Love and thoughts with you at this time.
