It’s with unfathomable sadness I advise the passing of my beautiful wife Kelsey – aka Mrs iMotorhome – on Saturday 29 October, just a month and a day after her 58th birthday.
The cancer Kelsey had so bravely fought for three months and which we believed conquered, returned with a vengeance, to the disbelief of everyone, including her treatment team. It was just two weeks from re-diagnosis until her peaceful passing in palliative care, whilst I held her hand…
Kelsey genuinely lived life to the full, especially her 32 years as an international flight attendant with Qantas, 25 of which were as a Customer Service Manager. A nurse by training, her first job was with Woolworths whilst still at school. Ironically, Kelsey said she had come full-circle, returning to Woolworths due to COVID-19 after taking voluntary redundancy from flying.
Many of you had met Kelsey and some of you were fortunate to count her as a friend. Thank you. She loved the motorhoming life and as we were transitioning to retirement, we'd just decided to downsize and invest in a ‘proper’ motorhome.
As anyone who has lost the love of their life knows, there are no words to comfort or console. In time I will return to motorhoming and hope to run into some of you in my travels. Until then, please raise a glass to Kelsey's memory, she would love that. If you are fortunate enough to have someone special, cherish every moment and take nothing for granted. Life is fragile and tomorrow is promised to no-one, so make the most of it. See you on the road…
