  4. We have been blessed to have the privilege of having Aunty Vonne in our lives. She brought such enthusiasm, genuine interest in what we were all doing and was so creative sharing her love of music teaching and examining until recently. She empowered everyone she selflessly shared her life with and will be dear in our hearts forever.

  9. I feel very fortunate to have meet Von, a welcoming and warm person. She shared everything from her hairdryer to her food. I only knew her for a short time but it was a valuable time in her company. I know a little of why her family and friends miss her so much. R.I.P. Von.
