It’s wonderful to read all the beautiful words written about our daughter Libby , she was such a special person to be with and we were very lucky that she was a part of our family . She fought leukaemia with such tenacity for almost four years but the miracles ran out , thank you to all the staff from Baxter 6 and Andrew Love Cancer at Geelong hospital for trying so hard to keep her alive .
We will do our best to tell Alex and Sofia how wonderful their mother was and how she adored them , our love to Alvaro , Alex and Sofia .xx

It is through a strange and small world link that I came to know of Libby's passing....I taught Libby when she was in Grade 1 and 2 at Yea Primary. I was young and enthusiastic, and was blessed with one of the most delightful grades of my teaching career, and Libby was a true delight. I think she reminded me of myself when I was a kid - in looks, interests, attitude and personality. I have often thought of her over the years, wondering what path she had chosen in life and where it had taken her. I asked one of her classmates that I have kept in touch with and see on a regular basis, if she knew where Libby was, but she had lost touch with the town and the kids from back then. It is sad that only through Libby's death that I have come to know some of the answers to my questions.
My deepest condolences to Libby's parents and her husband and children - Sophia is certainly a clone of her dear Mum in appearance! If only we could have met again and shared a few memories and created a few more.
Teachers only really have a handful of special students that they recall with great fondness - students that inspired them to better teaching. I hope she knew Libby was one of those students....x

Libby was one of the loveliest people I have had the privilege of looking after on Baxter 6. We are all absolutely devastated that she is no longer with us. She always had such a positive outlook on life, no matter what challenges it threw at her. I know how proud of her family Libby was, and I know how much it meant to her to be at Sophias graduation. From all the nurses on Baxter 6, we send all her family big hugs xx

Thank you to everyone who joined us to celebrate Libby's life, it was a beautiful celebration and you all that came along or joined the webcast made it possible.

See you all around!

Dear Alvaro, Alex and Sofia
Sending you all much love at this ridiculously hard time. The service was perfect for Libby and it was lovely to hear how many people she had touched. I am sorry that Covid kept both me and my husband Dave away from attending the funeral 😔
I met Libby in 2012 through work and we became quite close over the next 11 years, working, lunching and just hanging out together 💜 I often had her as my ‘plus one’ to attend corporate events in Melbourne.
Please know that I am here whenever if you would like to chat more about your mum. She was a definite gem 💎 with a heart of gold 🧡 and I am blessed to call her my friend.
Love and strength

Ri Scarborough (Hendrata) on 18 January, 2022 at 6:12pm

Dear Alvaro, Sofia and Alex,
I never actually had the pleasure of meeting you - I was a friend of Libby's at high school - but having watched this beautiful celebration of her life online, I now feel I know you a little bit. Thank you for making the service accessible to all of us who couldn't attend in person. I sobbed a lot sitting in front of my computer this afternoon - but I also smiled seeing photos of Libby grinning cheekily in her PLC uniform, just as I will always remember her. She was a fierce and beautiful soul. xxx

Jo Sandford on 18 January, 2022 at 5:01pm

Dear Alvaro and family,
Thank you for sharing this beautiful service with us all. My heartfelt condolences to you all. I knew Libby at school and the boarding house and it was a special surprise to reconnect with her all these years later in Geelong through Snap and find she was still the same caring, smiling, life enthusiast I remembered at school. With love, Erena

Sending much love and strength to everyone today. Am sorry I couldn't be there in person but felt very lucky to be able to still share in the beautiful celebration of the life of Libby. She would have been so proud of you all getting through the speeches made with such grace in the face of your sadness, especially Sofia who spoke so wonderfully. Lib made the most of her time here and will be so very missed by so many. I'll never forget our adventures and am so glad we crossed paths that first night in Portugal when we did. Vale Lib xx

Dear Sarah and family,
That was a beautiful service and you all spoke so articulately which must have been incredibly difficult. I remember Libby as always being so effortlessly cool - in the best sense of the word. Thinking of you all. Alison

Sharon Knight on 18 January, 2022 at 3:52pm

My sincere condolences to Alvaro and Libby's children, family and friends. I knew Libby from the distance of the Snap Support Office in Sydney. She was valued and respected member of the Snap family, held by all with affection and appreciation. She will be missed.

Tina Barnett on 18 January, 2022 at 3:18pm

Thank you for being there for me when I needed you. We knew we would have loved to have more time together as friends, and that’s not to be. I am devastated at the loss of your warm and wise self, the world is a better place because of you.
I will always remember and love you.

Meg Madeley on 18 January, 2022 at 3:13pm

So sorry to not be there in person, Libster was an amazing person and I can't believe I won't see her again. My first friend, I cannot express how much I miss you already xx

Alana-Mae Swain on 18 January, 2022 at 3:04pm

Alvaro, Sophia, Alex, Family and friends.
Libby has been a great mentor, with a belly full of laughter, knowledge and kindness. Even up till last year, she had helped me with my own brain cancer. Telling me 'it's bloody hard, but you've always need to keep climbing mountains, push yourself and no matter what we always rise up to keep going, ya know'.
She was a courageous spirit and will always inspire me in my heart.
Much love to you all,
Alana-Mae

Robert Mihalic on 18 January, 2022 at 2:59pm

Alvaro, I am so sorry for your loss. To you and your family, I pass on my condolences. I vividly remember when you and Libby came to Snap Homebush Bay about 11 years ago when you purchased your centre. Through the brief time I spent with you both, I could see the passion you both had for life and knew you would be a great success. It's with sadness I watch the live stream and can't imagine what you and your family is going through at the moment. I extend my deepest sympathy to you and your family.
Kind Regards,
Rob

Dear Alvaro, Alex, Soph, Carol, Gary, Sarah and James,

Our deepest condolences at the passing of my most wonderful of friends. I can’t imagine the loss you are all feeling.

Dearest Libby the laughs we shared, the jokes we had and the love we shared will stay with us forever.

There are so many things that I am missing but the thing we both loved was the quietness in our deepest conversations that’s where we found the true depth of our friendship.

We love you.

Love James, Nicole, Charlotte and Emma xxx

Craig Winter on 17 January, 2022 at 3:39pm

I am very sad to hear about Libby's passing and would like to extend my condolences to Alvaro, Alex and Sofia.
I was fortunate to meet Libby in my role at Snap Franchising where business discussions often morphed into conversations about kids, family and life. Libby was a beautiful soul, full of wisdom, care and we shared some conversations that will stay with me forever.
Libby was much more to me than a Franchise Partner, I consider her a friend who will be sorely missed. I will treasure the memories and our chats. xx

Ursula, Liam & Aiden (Grade 6, 2021) on 16 January, 2022 at 12:22am

To Alex & Sofia, Thankyou for sharing your beautiful mum with so many of us at Highton Primary. Libby was a bubbly, happy, cheeky & funny woman, a wonderfully caring human & did so much to make your school journey one filled with community spirit.
To Alvaro & Libby’s extended family, we are so very sorry for your loss. Rest well Libby. I hope the sun is shining on you xxx

Peter Fiasco on 15 January, 2022 at 8:19pm

It saddens me to have heard of Libby's departure. I had only met Libby a couple of times at Snap functions, but I remember her well. She was a great contributor to the Snap Business family and I know all of us at Snap will miss her. I can only provide my condolences to Alvaro, teh children and the extended family.

Kristin & Rachel Aitken on 14 January, 2022 at 11:28am

I wish I could be at the memorial, to pay my respects to a remarkable woman. Her cheekiness, her clarity of thought, her determination to see things through, her astute observations, and her humour made her a joy to be around. Libby was a source of inspiration and someone to look up to. Libby's good humour, courage, and tenacity continue to inspire. She has left an indelible mark on many lives. Despite the pain of losing her, I am incredibly glad, and privileged, to have known her.

Rachel would like to say to Sofia - I'm so sad to hear about your mum. She was always so friendly and cheery and I'm sure you miss her. I'm sending lots of hugs.

Her memory is a blessing. Our hearts are with you - may you know no more sorrow.

Lyndsay and Jonathan Wright on 13 January, 2022 at 7:59pm

Libby - amazing, strong, fun and feisty and these don't even begin to describe some of her best qualities. Libby lives on in your hearts and your spirit Alvaro, Alex, Sofia, Carole, Gary, Sara, James, Tara, Craig. Always behind you, cheering you on. Jonathan and I are blessed to have known Libby. X

Alex Hamilton - You Will Be So Missed Libby X on 13 January, 2022 at 2:07pm

Thinking of you all x

Ri Scarborough (Hendrata) on 13 January, 2022 at 10:31am

My memories of Libby from high school are full of her big smile, magnetic optimism and infectious laughter. If there was ever a group activity, everyone would want Libby to be in their group, because she would make it fun… but also get s*** done! This clearly remained her modus operandi throughout adulthood, too, with her attitude to family and work and contributions to the broader community even as she dealt with serious illness. Libby, the world is a much better place for having had you burning so brightly in it, and I’m so sad your time here was cruelly cut short. Much love to your partner and children. Ri xxx

Tarli Sali on 13 January, 2022 at 9:06am

I will never forget Libby’s always smiling face at school- and it never stopped!
Sending my love and deepest sympathies to her family xx

Kate Trickett on 13 January, 2022 at 7:38am

My favourite memories of Libby are from playing netball together. True to character, she was a fair, tough and courageous player. I enjoyed spending time with Libby and valued her friendship immensely.

Dave Carr on 13 January, 2022 at 6:23am

Ah Lib, you were the first person I ever shared a house with and I'm proud to say that we quickly became firm friends. A straight shooter, way smarter than the rest of us, always up for a laugh and a spot of interpretive dance. The world's a poorer place without you mate. ❤

Meg on 12 January, 2022 at 10:50pm

Libster, I will "forget you not".
You were an amazing, generous, selfless, shining light!
May your light continue to shine, I will see you in the Ever-after my friend xx

Suzanne,Wal,Lucy Elkington on 12 January, 2022 at 8:04pm

Thank you for your friendship I will miss you xoxo
