Dear Rove, Family and Friends,
My deepest sympathy goes out to all of you. Life can be so cruel and we all wonder why this could happen. You were a beautiful couple. Belinda was gracious, kind and beautiful and she was blessed to have you Rove as a loving husband and best friend. The love and support you have given one another was amazing. We will miss her. She was loved by all, and Rove you have so much love and support within Australia. We will always love you both.
God Bless you Belinda.

Please, try your hardest to “tune in” and allow yourselves to be comforted and strengthened by the waves of love coming from all of us*.
*We’re the ones that have never met Belinda but are grieving for you nevertheless.
Dear Rove, Friends and family,
There are no words. Life is a mixture of indescribable joy and pain. One easier to bear than the other, and each highlighting the existence of the other. You are both amazing! The strength and endurance you both have shown, the unending love for each other, a beacon to others. All our thoughts are with you as we send strength your way to take each minute as it comes and just breathe.
Thinking of you.

No words can heal your pain right now. May all the memories you and Bel created be forever lasting. May her courage and kindred spirit be instilled in you and live on in all our hearts and memory. Belinda will be sadly missed. Thoughts and prayers are with you and your loved ones.
To Rove, Emmett and McManus families
I just wanted to pass on my heartfelt sympathy. Although, I obviously didn't know Belinda personally, I feel that I did know her. You see, I worked at Shellharbour Council with her uncle Craig and he often spoke about Belinda and I know how proud he was of her. He was kind enough to obtain, for my daughter who is a great fan of Belinda, a personally autographed photo.
I know what you must be going through and how desperately you miss her. Once again please accept my deepest sympathy.
Regards, Natty Apolo
Dear Rove and Belinda's family

Belinda I am 33 years old and feel like I grew up with you, watching you on every TV show. I always thought you were angel like, so beautiful and warmness exuded through our TV screens. You have taught me to cherish every moment and to never give up in times of hardships. My sincere condolences to the ever supporting Rove and your loving family. The angles have a beautiful Stella amongst them now.
Love Lisa Melbourne Vic.
A beautiful person can touch the heart of many or can touch the heart of just one. Australia was fortunate enough to have Belinda and her fairytale love with Rove touch us all. Rove, you smiled every time you spoke of Belinda, and now you’ll smile every time you remember her. She’ll see your tears, she’ll feel your pain, she’ll be your courage when you need it and your confidant for life.
Always by your side,
There are no sympathies, only the good fortune to have found your soul mate and enjoyed each other for as long as possible.
Take care Rove,
Dear Rove and the McManus and Emmett family,
I do not know you.
You do not know me.
Yet you and your beautiful wife touched my heart.
Your pure love shone for all the world to see.
I shed a tear to hear that Belinda had passed away.
I just wanted to extend my deepest sympathies to you all at this time and please know that you are in the hearts of millions of Australians right now.
Regards Paulene, Simon and Caleb Christie (and the bump on the way)
To Rove and Family,
At this sad time in your life you have to be grateful for one thing that you are all better people because of her. Her strength and courage is inspirational to all and she has touched many people with her fight against this derailing disease. I hope through all your tears, you can smile again and remember her for the angelic person she was.
With deepest Sympathies and love

Sorry to hear of the loss of your beautiful wife Belinda. It’s amazing that even though the public did not know you personally as a couple, we are all feeling the heaviness of your loss today. I believe this is because as a couple you sparkled with positive attitude. I always admired how you made complementary and funny remarks about Belinda at your public appearances, which I’m sure made Belinda feel special although she may have been embarrassed at the time. She was very lucky to have you in her life. I found this that she said as a reminder of the pillar of strength you were to her.
“Rove's fantastic. He doesn't flinch. He doesn't flinch. He's incredible, absolutely incredible. Honestly, I don't think I could have gotten through this the way that I have, if I hadn't had him there for support.”
Remember that you gave her amazing moments that she would not have otherwise had in her life.
To Dear Rove And Belinda Family,
We are so sorry to hear about the passing of your beautiful wife and daughter, Belinda was a wonderful amazing beautiful person both inside and out she will be missed so much. She will always be with you, I feel for you so much, but there is a higher being out there, and you will remain the beautiful person you are, there are thousands of hearts aching for you, be strong and & one day you will be with her again.
With all our love

To Rove and all the Emmett family,
I am so sorry that this has happened to such a wonderful, caring and talented person. Belinda was a star on screen and she will be deeply missed my many people. I grew up watching her on home and away and I cried my eyes out when I found out. A big hug to Rove (you made her smile) and to all the family. I am a natural therapist and I see a lot of women who have had cancer. My only hope is that they find a cure soon. Belinda, we will miss you deeply, you will always be in our hearts. You are now an angel on earth.

Dear Rove, Emmett and McManus family
I really don't know what to say other then I am terribly sad for your loss. I honestly believed she was going to beat this horrible battle with cancer. When I heard the other day that she had passed it brought tears to my eyes. You were married one week after me in 2005... what a wonderful man you are Rove, it is every girls dream to get to walk down the aisle in a wedding dress, and Belinda got to and she looked so beautiful. Be strong, Michelle
We are deeply saddened to hear of the death of Belinda. To Rove and her family who held her up for so long and gave her the support she needed, we are sorry for you loss and she will always be with you. Life is so short.

To Dear Rove & family
Today bought back so many tears for me for I lost my sister to this cruel disease (Oct 13th 39yrs old 4 children 11yrs & under and a very loving husband) 4 weeks have passed I always compared my sister to Belinda as they fought this disease the same way always looking for alternative treatments death was never an option for my sister. Take heart that Belinda is now in heaven and Rove she will always walk by your side she will be there to guide you all throughout life’s challenges. Just today my 4yr old son was playing outside when he came running in saying he saw his Aunty Agatha up in the sky...I asked him what was she doing and he replied she was smiling at me. Take comfort from all those around you and always speak to her as she is listening and smiling upon you all...
I WAS LUCKY ENOUGH TO MEET BELINDA BRIEFLY YEARS AGO AT A CHARITY FUNCTION WHEN SHE WAS PRESENTING A LADY AT THE NEXT TABLE TO ME WITH HER AUCTION PRIZE BECAUSE SHE WAS THE HIGHEST BIDDER IN THE AUCTION.
I ASKED BELINDA AS SHE PASSED BY IF SHE WOULD POSE FOR A PHOTO WITH MY BROTHER AND COUSIN. SHE WAS SO LOVELY AND SAID YES AND NOTHING WAS A PROBLEM.
MY COUSIN AND BROTHER WERE SO EXCITED TO BE IN A PHOTO WITH THIS BEAUTIFUL STAR THEY TIPPED DRINK ALL OVER THE TABLE. IT WAS SO FUNNY WATCHING THESE GUYS GOING SO GA GA OVER BELINDA AND EMBARRASSING THEMSELVES. BELINDA JUST LAUGHED AND I SAID TO HER LOOK WHAT YOU DO TO THESE MEN. THEN SHE STAYED FOR A FEW MORE MINUTES AND CHATTED. I COULD TELL SHE WAS A NATURALLY GIVING PERSON. WHAT A LOVELY THING TO DO AND I WILL NEVER FORGET IT.
CATHERINE, PICNIC POINT, SYDNEY
Dear Rove and the Emmett and McManus families,
My heartfelt sympathy and love on the loss of Belinda. Although I did not have the pleasure of knowing Belinda personally, her strength, positivity and determination was nothing but inspirational to me and many other Australians, as she bravely fought cancer with you Rove, her soul mate, by
her side. May Belinda's memory live on in you, Rove, and your family and friends.... The world is a better place because of Belinda, I truly believe that.
Taken too soon,
A rest well earned after such a tough fight...
With much love and light,
There are no words to take away your pain. Just know that we are thinking of you and all that loved Belinda, we are sending you all our prayers and strength to get through the difficult days ahead.

Take care and be strong.

Take heart from Belinda, remember her strength, her beliefs. We remember her with you. Not in the same way, that is not possible, but what she represented, her strength and her belief in family. Our hearts go out to you.

Dear Rove, Emmett & McManus Families
Our deepest sympathy goes out to you at this sad time. I've always admired Belinda's strength & courage, her love for life & her love for Rove. She was an inspiring young woman . Belinda will be missed but not forgotten. Rove, your angel will always be watching over you.
The Conroy Family
To Rove, Emmett and McManus family.
My deepest sympathy goes to and anyone involved in Belinda's life. It's very hard to comprehend what to say when someone has just lost a loved one. I only hope that you take on board the beautiful memories you have both shared in the time given to you. I'm sure with Belinda's illness you both probably appreciated life much more than others. I pray you will get passed this heartache. Belinda will always be in your heart and your memories. Take your time to grieve and mourn your sad loss. Thank you Belinda for your kindred spirit and your fight for life I know what you are going through. I once lost a sister to cancer and a sister- in-law who almost died from it. Home and Away is a far better programme since your appearance there but the world is not the same without your lovely smiling face.
Love Simon xxx
Dear Rove and the Emmett Family,
What a terribly sad time for not only you all but for those of us who just Loved Belinda. What an inspiration she was and is to all the world. I didn't know Belinda, but somehow feel in some way I did because she had that effect on people where you just wanted to be her friend. What a strong union Rove and her were and always will be. She is a shining light and now an even more beautiful angel than before. I am so very grateful that she will not suffer anymore. Miss you always Belinda.
Please Take Care Rove and remember you are never alone.
Love Always, Leanne.
Dear Rove, the Emmett Family and McManus Family,
We will always remember Belinda in wonderful memories.
Gone but not forgotten.
