Dear Rove, Belinda's family and Rove's family,
Our thoughts are with you at this very sad time. The love that you shared will always be with you.
Love the Ritchie Family, Brisbane.
Words cannot begin to describe the loss of such a wonderful and courageous person as Belinda. I have always been a huge fan of Belinda's from her days on Home and Away and again All Saints and Hey Dad, a true professional and always a joy to watch her perform.
My thoughts and prayers go to her family and friends and especially Rove, who even in the tough times he was having "behind the scenes" you were always there to make us laugh. Your strength and support is what got Belinda through her hardships, you really are an incredible person. I can only hope that she can now rest in peace.
To Rove and Family, our thoughts are for you, from Ross and Leone French and family

I can’t imagine what you are going through right now but to family & friends of Belinda you know you have us all here for support & you know Belinda is happy & at peace where she is. Her life was special.

You will have a wealth of beautiful, happy memories to cherish and reflect upon, so do not dwell on the sadness too long. Always remember Belinda's amazing smile lit up a room and her spirit still shines! Our warmest thoughts to the Emmett and McManus families, and especially to you Rove -
Sincere Condolences from The Evans Family, Belmont, NSW.
Dear Rove and family,
Our deepest condolences on the loss of your loved one. May GOD bless you and strengthen you in this time. Rove remember the poem of the footsteps, God is carrying you.
Love from Belle and family.
I cried when i found out about Belinda, i cried all weekend, and was shocked. So, i can only imagine how grief stricken you must be. Your heart must be aching. In life when these terrible things happen, there is nothing we can do to change them. No one can tell you how to mourn, you will do it your way in your time. I just hope your pain is eased by family and friends and god gives you strength to soldier on. Your love for each other was beautiful, you were an amazing couple. Rove you were a wonderful husband and friend to Belinda, always by her side. I know Australia is so very proud of you, a true gentleman. Belinda is watching you, she will always be with you in spirit, she is at peace. Belinda may be gone, but the memories you both share will never be taken from you, and can be kept in your heart forever until you meet again. God Bless You Rove

Dear Rove and Belinda's family I was truly saddened to hear that Belinda had passed away I loved her performances in Home and Away she was a very beautiful lady always smiling. My deepest sympathy goes out to both the McManus and Emmett families.

Dear Rove, the McManus & Emmett Families, and to all Your Wonderful Friends who shared your journey until to the end.
My Gift to You
The love you immersed Belle with from the beginning 'til end. Was courageous and unselfish, on your part. This was a journey only God for some reason planned. The Emmett's must have loved you as we could all tell. As on your wedding day, they entrusted you ROVE with their beautiful but frail courageous beaming bride Belle. And Australian's were praying for it to end up like a story book ending 'that happy ever after tale'.
You knew you were privileged as you married a special angel embedded deep within your heart. You took Belle for better for worse, in sickness in health and 'til death do you part. You knew all along God's angels were coming closer to take her away.
Their little girl named Belinda, whom they cradled in their arms, how ever could they have envisaged all the talent that she in the future would show. We were honoured to watch their daughter who one day would grace our televisions with shows like "Hey Dad!"
And all we oldies' watched her grow up and bloom into the most beautiful women softly gracing our shows. The further the years the sweeter the gleam
To The Dear Emmett family and Rove
I am so sorry for your loss but please take solace in the fact she is out of pain and still around you all always, that I am sure of.
Kindest regards, love and light Kirsty
Dearest Rove and the Emmett/McManus Families,
My heart felt sympathies go out to you and your family at this time. Belinda was and always will be one of the true angels this world has been blessed to know and she will be surely missed. Only but a minute on this earth but forever in our hearts. Wishing you the sweetest dreams Belinda.
Sincerely yours, K. Doherty, Perth
A message to Rove and to all of Belinda's Loved ones.
Nothing I can say or do will take away your pain but I do hope that by saying what I feel brings you if anything comfort. I like the rest of the nation am deeply saddened by the passing of Beautiful Belinda, But like you Rove, I find comfort in knowing Belinda, now has her wings and is no longer suffering.
I look back on Belinda's fight against this terrible disease and I take comfort in knowing that she didn't die in vain she showed me and so many others Strength and courage but most of all she taught the nation Awareness. I believe thru her ordeal she not only touched the lives of many Australians but she saved them...
Rove,-Belinda your kindred spirit, no longer in pain, no longer suffering, no longer the earth angel that she was but now more then ever, Rove and Family, Belinda I believe is your Guardian Angel always watching over you, and keeping you strong just as she was.

To the Emmet Family and husband Rove,
Condolences on the recent passing of your beloved one Belinda. As a kid (& major H&A fan) i remember her friendly face and admire her brave outlook on life. Belinda's ongoing strength & courage has been inspiring to us all! RIP Belinda
Dearest Rove and all family involved,
I was so shocked to hear about Belinda I almost smashed my car when I heard news broke. Belinda is one year older than me so being the same age life is very precious for me now more than ever. I have had cancer hit my family with my dad’s death, there is no words to make loved ones left behind, but just to say I am thinking of you Rove. Belinda did leave a mark in everyone's heart in just came naturally for her. May you rest in peace Belinda. Rove I really think so much of you for letting love conquer on no matter what came towards you and Belinda.
Love Rachael La Rose and family Melbourne
Belinda was amazing and will be a light that will shine past her years here on Earth, she was just one of those people. Our prayers are with her parents, brother, sister in law and nieces at this time and pray that you will find comfort in each other. Belinda you much loved and you gave so much love back. You're an angel, enjoy Heaven.

We just wanted to let you know that our thoughts are with you at this present time. We think that you’re an amazing person Rove, and we also think that Belinda was
a very special actress on '' Home and Away'' too; ....and ''All Saints''. We watch Rove every Tuesday night, and my favourite special of your's is "WHAT THE?"
Thank you for being such an inspiration towards the industry.

Rove, family and friends of Belinda Emmett:
I am saddened to hear of Belinda’s passing. May you find strength in her memories and each other as you grieve your loss.
Heart felt sympathy, from M Bell
My name is Magdalena Killeen and I’m from Perth. The first time I saw Belinda I thought she was the most beautiful woman on this earth. She was on Who Dares Wins and I admired her so much. Then I saw her on TV singing and I thought what can’t this girl do. I thought she had everything going for her. Then I heard the tragic news about her cancer and then her love with Rove. I thought you were the ideal couple. There was no one nicer on this earth than you and her. I cried when I heard about her death. Rove you are a gem just like she was. I was jealous of her life. She had everything going for her. I’m the same age as her and she was just fabulous. I love you and I love her. God Bless. You’re in all in our prayers.
Dear Rove and Emmet family, my deepest heartfelt sympathy in your loss. Rove and Belinda have given so much joy and happiness on T.v. and so much inspiration to live and love to the fullest. My heart breaks for you all, Yours sincerely the Wheeler family
Dear Rove and Family
Every time i go to write this i don't know what to say. I was so sadden at Belinda's passing i never new her but my heart is breaking for you all, I am thirty and you have opened my eyes, life is to short and Belinda lived each day to the fullest and i have no right to complain about a god dame thing she might be gone but she will never ever be forgotten, God has another ANGEL by his side......
Although I have never met you or your beloved Belinda, I feel so much sadness for your loss. Belinda was obviously on this earth for a specific reason, you were the person chosen as her soulmate. It was far too short a time together, but I am sure a day wouldn't be swapped. I hope your treasured memories help you come to terms with her passing. I believe that you will be reconnected one day. Take care, Margie
Belinda was truly an inspiration. Our thoughts are with you at this sad time.

Belinda - What an inspirational, beautiful soul, even to those who had never met her. The love she and Rove so obviously shared is a reminder to us all that life is so short.
To the Families our deepest sympathy for the loss of Belinda.
A true lady, and very loved. Our thoughts are with you, in this difficult time. Jennifer D
The BEAUTY that has left the earth today has a lost feeling for all that has followed Belinda. The way i first looked at her on the screens (Home and Away) I knew straight away I wanted to be as she was, a very passionate caring and devoted lady. I love you Belinda and hope i end up the person you were. Rove and family, she is looking down on you now and would be very comfortable.
To Rove and family.
May God Bless and give you comfort at this most difficult time. Belinda will live on in your hearts forever. Live the rest of your lives to the full for her sake. She will always be with you. " A beautiful angel".
I am just so upset for you all, family and friends.....What a sad time for all of you. You have lost the most inspirational person ever. What a brave woman Belinda was...I will be praying for you to get through this. Life is just so unfair....
Dear family of Belinda,
My grandmother had cancer and i know how terribly hard it is to deal with the loss of loved ones. may my thoughts and many sorrows be with you
with love...billie j, melbourne vic
Dear Rove and Families,
My sincere condolences go out to you at this time. Every time you have made me laugh watching your show (which has been a lot) I turn to my husband and say "Gee Belinda must just be sitting at home, absolutely cacking herself... ". I'm glad Rove, that she had your wonderful self to make her time here joyous, light and a laugh a minute.
Sincerely The Oakley Family, Geelong Vic
Hearing the sad news that you had lost your beautiful wife Belinda, has made me take a good luck at my own marriage and thank god that i have my loving husband by my side. I am the same age as Belinda and life is so precious. It is wrong that she has been taken from you in body. But she will never leave you in spirit and soul. I will thank god every day for my husband and my two beautiful children. Our deepest sympathy to you all at this confusing, sad and lonely time. My only advice to you is, don’t be strong if you don’t want to. Allow yourself to grieve.....Love to your family from mine
Cancer took your life, but it could not take your heart and soul. If I had had the chance to meet you, I would have told you how much I admired your strength and your glowing spirit. You met every challenge head on, with your unique positive energy, and touched both those close to you and those who had never met you.
I will always remember your fight, and try to apply your principles to my own life. You have reminded me to feel grateful for all that I have many times, by the example of your courage. Rest in peace ever after, I know you will be watching over us all.
To Rove, The McManus Family, The Emmett Family and all of Belinda's many
From the words of Walter Scott (1771-1832), Scottish Novelist:
'Death is not the last sleep
It is the final awakening'
As the people who love you express their best wishes may you find comfort from the pain in your heart. I am sure that the memory of Belinda's amazing spirit will be of comfort to you today and always. Your angel is, at last, at peace, in pain no more.
With love and sincere condolences, Katrina Jones. Melbourne xxx
