No words, just grief and endless tears
A life of just too few years
An angel to all that shared her life
To Rove so much more than a wife
"Unfair", I scream. I grieve and grieve.
Why did the angel have to leave?
A life, a spirit, a love, a soul
Gone, and left a dreadful hole
We have lost a talent without par
But the heavens have gained a brighter star
To Rove and Families
Although Belinda is not here, we are far apart, Belinda will always be here in all of our hearts.
All our thoughts and love is with you, Gilleland-Williamson Family (Cooloongup WA)
To Rove & family,
Our deepest condolences to you all, may Belinda memories give you the strength through this trying time.
God bless, Jo & family (Perth WA)

Dear Rove, Emmett and the McManus family,
My prayers are with you and your family during this time of need. I prayer that Belinda is there with you to give you the strength you need to get through this time. Her music is a beautiful as her. My hope is her dreams of letting the world hear her heavenly voice will come true as I'm sure everyone would like to hear what was in her heart.
Love always, Joanne
Your love for each other and Belinda's strength and grace in the face of the hovering spectre of death shone from the screen. We all face the chaos and struggle of life and you both stood out to me as people whose love challenged the obstacles. Someone once said ' better to have loved lost than to never have loved at all' I am glad you had each other for that precious time, some never do. One day the pain will ease, it won't go away but it will be integrated into your life. My thoughts are with you. All the platitudes in the world will make no difference to having to carry you beloved's remains to her resting place. I hope one day love will come again. Christina.
Dear rove and Emmett family
I feel for you all but most of all you rove. the love you both had was wonderful. Belinda will be deeply missed I shall for sure get her cd. She is a wonderful and special lady, please take care
Dear Rove, Emmett and McManus Families,
Sincerest condolences to you all at this extremely difficult and sad time. I hope and pray for you all especially you Rove that you will be given the respect, privacy and all the time that you will need to slowly come to terms with what has happened. Belinda touched me in so many ways with her inner beauty, poise and warmth maybe this is why I feel so compelled to leave this message. Rove, always remember to look out at the gorgeous night sky and there you will find your precious "shining star" looking over you, guiding you and protecting you. A beautiful, gracious and gentle soul, courageous and dignified now at peace.

From our family to yours may the grief be short lived, may the sun shine again on you all, and from above your Angel will be there looking down on you.

In our hearts too as we remember the gorgeous beautiful talented young woman she was. Time does heal, but we will never forget.

N ever give up
Dear Rove, Emmett & McManus families,
Why is life so unfair? I can’t understand how such a young radiant person such as Belinda was struck with such a devastating illness with a devastating outcome. Her future was so bright and she was just so wonderful! I will still think of her as a star but more of a star in the sky now. Never forgotten.
Melissa F and family xxxooo
May the love, laughter, tears and friendship that you will always share and forever carry with you bring a smile to your face more than a tear to your eyes when you remember the precious memories that no-one can ever take away of a beautiful soul.
The Irvine Family
I just listened to "Less than perfect" I cried through the whole song. Belinda was definitely perfect, a beautiful angel who blessed this earth and all of us that set eyes on her. Her radiant smile, came from you Rove. You not only made her smile but all of us that you entertained. You hid the pain inside your heart.....well now it’s our turn.....know that we are there with you in heart and spirit. You made my son and I laugh week after week....and I'm sure you did that for your precious wife....your support was incredible....., we are thinking of you through this difficult time..... we are deeply saddened by your loss....J & J Kais
Belinda, may you now be free. Deepest sympathy. Helena
Dear Rove and the Emmett family,
I was very much saddened when I heard that Belinda had lost her battle with Cancer. Please know that she really was an inspiration to other Cancer sufferers.
I am 33 and a cancer survivor. Belinda’s diagnosis was the reason why I had myself checked out. All the time I was ill I followed her progress and at times when I wanted to give up, I would think to myself: If Belinda can do this then I can too. I owe her so much for that. Her suffering is over, may she rest in peace.
I know this is little comfort to you all but I just wanted you to know how much her journey helped others struck by this terrible disease.
This is going to be a long and hard time for you all and I will pray that God will give you the strength and solace that you need. Going through all this and being in the public eye must be difficult for you but please know that we are thinking of you.
Take Care and God Bless You, Ange
Belinda, what a smile! I don't think I’ve ever seen someone more happier than Belle! Rove obviously you have made her amazing years a delight, you can see it in her face, you were the caress on her cheek. I hope you have the strength to go on! I know Belle will be wanting you to be ok. The love will never be lost ever!
Dear loved ones,
Our thoughts are with you all. Belinda will always be forever young.
Don't ever stop shining beautiful star.
Love The Doughty-Casey's XXxxx

To Rove and the Emmett family. Please accept my sincerest condolences for your loss. Belinda is still with you and will guide you along the rest of your journey.
Sincere condolences to Rove & the Emmett family on this tragic loss & waste of such an awesome human being who had so much to offer this world. I didn't know her personally, but had met her & on the day found her to be glady willing to talk & nothing seemed to much trouble for the fans that loved her. What a wonderful AUSTRALIAN ICON she IS. My Deepest sympathy to all. I have been there & know a great loss of a loved one isn't an easy or short process.
SINCERE BEST WISHES, The Bowen of Koondoola WA
I'm extremely sorry to hear about the very sad loss of such a kind and wonderful woman, Belinda. She was a wonderful long time friend of mine and I always looked forward to running into her at Erina while she was shopping with her mum or on her own and through all her fame still had the kindest things to say to me and cheer me up when I was down.. Belinda you will be sorely missed and always have a place in my heart as a true long time friend. My thoughts and tears go out to all the Emmett / Rove family as I fully understand what you are all going through as I too have lost someone through breast cancer just recently.
kind regards, Dave Usher
