On Behalf of all of us Resigned Police – may you forever Rest In Peace Jenny.
Yesterday I attended the funeral of ex Jenny Bonham (Taylor) who worked at Macquarie Fields and Campbelltown. Jenny served for 8 years before resigning and going back to nursing. I was somewhat amazed to learn that if you have resigned from the Police they will not issue a Nemises message regarding your death or any funeral details, this also applies to public servants in the Police. So much for the Police Family.
Today we said our final goodbye to a beautiful lady.
Mother, daughter, sister, mother and friend to so many
It was possibly the hardest thing I have had to do thus far.
Watching my brother’s heart break as he said goodbye to his soul mate was something I will never forget.
Jen made the world a better place. She had a zest for life that was second to none. I’m still in a state of shock, it was far too soon and I really wasn’t ready. Today hurtled me through so many emotions that are hard to explain.
It really does prove that we have no control over when we go. Hug and tell your loved ones as much as you can.
Jen was more than a sister in law to me, she was my sister. One I had craved for all my life. I was nervous meeting her for the first time, wondering if she would like me. Never did I expect to find someone who would change me in so many ways.
Christmases changed for our family, we finally spent time together. We finally laughed and loved as a tight family and that was because of Jen. Never before had I felt as if I truly did belong until Jen built a relationship between my brother and I. It wasn’t until one Christmas night after everyone had gone to bed that Jen told me how much my brother loved and cared for me…he may not always say it but he did. It was moments like this I will always remember with her.
This coming Christmas will be hard knowing she won’t be there telling me ‘its wine o’clock somewhere’ as she poured a glass and sat outside by the bbq and it’s going to be tough not hearing the greeting ‘Sister’ again.
All I know right now in my period of fresh grief is time will heal my wounds and my broken heart, but I will never forget this woman who changed me in so many great ways. These memories that I have of her, will be cherished and remembered forever.
Although I am an author, I can’t seem to find enough words to sum up this amazing woman who inspired and loved so many. I only hope she knew how much she was loved and still will be by all that knew her. She genuinely was a true Aussie spirit, one that will never dim with age.
RIP Jenny Bonham
