In memory of my mother, Phyllis Dawn Cottam.
04th November, 1926 to 13th March, 2018.
A year ago today, as the sun was rising over Brisbane my beloved mother departed this earth, to join her much adored husband, Keith. My mother was a strong woman and a creative homemaker, inspiring me in so many ways, and cultivating in me my love of beautiful gardens. She was nurturing and caring, and always took great interest in her family. She made me, my husband and our children always feel welcome, with a pot of her pumpkin soup and delicious cupcakes ready on the table. I will forever feel grateful for the wonderful week we spent together, not long before she died, as we sat and talked, holding hands together in love. I felt blessed then, and I still do now, to have had her for my mother.
Forever in our memories, Jacqui, David, Maddie, Alastair and Harriet Reith.
