Kate Larkins & Bruce Chester, Fernleigh
We would like to sincerely thank all of the people involved in the search around Fernleigh for our dear friend Patty Jung over July 16 and 17.
It was inspiring to witness the logistics involved searching through difficult terrain to locate Patty. The swift co-ordination of Ballina police, Lismore detectives and the SES was commendable.
Although the outcome did not reflect our wishes, the actions of the selfless individuals involved in achieving that outcome cast a silver lining on an otherwise dark cloud.
Patty was extremely well known and liked throughout the Byron and hinterland communities, having started and operated Corndale Organic Bushfoods as a family business during the 1980s.
Many of your readers will remember their ground-breaking market stall selling certified organic macadamia nuts and macadamia butter.
We will think of all those who helped with the search during the celebration of her life that will be held at Corndale Hall on Sunday August 5 from 11am.
