I am heartbroken to hear the news about Nola and am sending my deepest condolences and love to Jamie, Sophia, Ruby and Lucy, your entire family and all your friends.
Nola and I worked together in Dunedin in 1998-1999 and became good friends, and I was delighted that Nola & Jamie were able to come to my wedding in Queenstown in 2000. While I haven't lived nearby since then, I think of Nola often and my mum always tells me when she's bumped into her because they always stop to chat! Nola is one of the kindest and loveliest people I've ever known, and I will always remember her positive energy, her smile and her gorgeous hair! I know this will be the most difficult time in your lives and I will be thinking of you all as you celebrate her life together on Tuesday. With so much love, kim x

I am so sorry that this terrible tragedy has happened to your family. I met Nola a while back when I took your lovely cat (sadly- deceased) into her and and she told me she was going to have 3 very upset girls. She was a lovely lady and you are all in my thoughts.
