  1. Dear Marigold, or Goldie, as I usually called you, I am so sorry that you have suffered for so long. I have known you all your life and was always struck by your beauty and vivacity.
    Goldie was devoted to her siblings, Simon and Brandon. Her mother, Nesta, was delighted to give birth to a girl as Nesta was one among seven boys.
    Goldie has had a devoted husband, Jamie, with two lovely children, Daisy and Daniel, so our thoughts and prayers are particularly with them and Brandon, her brother, at this upsetting time. Goldie’s family and friends will miss her greatly. May she now rest in peace.
    Love from, Uncle Noel and Sandra.

  2. Dearest Maz, we’ve not been in touch since those college days, so this feels a little weird and sad that this is our first contact since then. I could have let the day go by without comment, and I nearly did, however I wanted to let you know how important you were to me during those college days.
    You were the first person I spoke to at the induction day (we were 16 back then), and we immediately clicked. We spent many a Media Studies A-Level class giggling at the course lecturer, no doubt you’d remember his name 🙂
    You were a shining light, always smiling so I’m saddened to hear about your struggles in adult life, I guess our paths took us on different journeys.
    My hope is that you are now at peace and my thoughts and prayers are with your family at this desperately tragic time.
    To you Marigold, much love, from your old college friend, Sarah xx

  3. Maz, I dont know where to start really. I feel so devastated by the news that you had passed away. Our lives had gone in different directions after you moved away and with us both having our children and very busy lives just never really stayed in touch. I was dealing with my own stuff and had no idea that you were suffering. After hearing the terrible news I dug out all the old photos of us at College, days out, nights out, all the music festivals and of course traveling in Australia in the year 1999/2000 and the Millenium party overlooking Sydney Opera House. 15 years of friendship. I re-read some of the hundreds of emails that we used to write to each other from our temping desks in the 90s and laughed my head off. You were so funny, so beautiful and always kind. We spend a lot of time together and you were such great company. You were a brilliant person Maz, I will remember all the good times. Sending so much love to your family from my family and my mum and dad who we spent lots of time with too.

  4. To my beautiful cousin Marigold (Goldie or ‘Golden chops’ as your mum called you sometimes ). I feel so devastated to be writing a message of condolence to someone who I spent some of my happiest times with as a child – we were born 2 weeks apart and had the large Morgan family for entertainment and school holidays for fun- we spent hours and hours laughing so much we would cry. Everything felt hilarious when we were hanging out- each time we were reunited we would start giggling about something ridiculous straight away. I am so sad to fully realise the suffering that you have been dealing with in more recent years and the pain you were clearly in. You have bought 2 wonderful children into the world and your love for them and Jamie was so evident. I know you were also an excellent teacher in your career as we had practiced with our toys as children. You would say.. come along ‘choldren’ and get them all organised while I would still be giggling at our last joke. You were supremely kind and I’m sure you will have made a difference to many who were lucky enough to have been taught by you. We will all miss you being in our lives and the part you have played in our experiences. Your death is a huge loss for us all; in particular Jamie Daisy Daniel and Brandon but for all who knew you. We know that you were very brave you fought hard for a long time and now you must rest with Simon and your mum again x love as always Goldie your cousin Tessa

  5. Our thoughts with you all at this very sad time. We have memories of very happy times of friendship with Hallam and Naidoo children growing up in Watford. We won’t forget.

  6. God Bless You, Marigold! You have gone to a better place, to join your wonderful mother Nesta and your brother Simon, my dear old schoolmate. Until we all meet again! Sincerest condolences to Jamie, Daisy, Daniel, and to Brandon.

    Matt and Sarah Spring, Jamie and Kelly Spring, and Roger and Rosemary Spring
  7. Dear Marigold, Goldie,

    Thank you for all the fun times in our childhood. We always enjoyed visiting the mischievous trio of you (“Choldren!”), Simon (“Stuff it!”) and Brandon (“More peas!”). As Tessa said, I remember how she and you never stopped laughing when you were together.

    I’m so sorry that you suffered so much and I admire your courage at coping with your devastating inner world for so long. You had huge strength of character.

    We are thinking of Jamie, Daisy, Daniel and Brandon.

    With love from Georgie, Matt, Nye and Laurie.

    Georgie Steele
