Caroline was beam a light for me, always smiling and doing her best. A lovely women who adored sweet little Tia.

From: Lauren Barrie

My family only knew Caroline for a short couple of years, as she lived next door to my grandma Sandra. My two children (Ryan & Rachel) loved going next door to visit her and Tia – Caroline always like to spoil them with a chocolate ‘for right now, and one for the pocket.’ Seeing her was always a highlight of our visits to Nelson, we will miss seeing her and it will be oddly quiet not hearing Tia next door. All the best to Caroline’s family.
