We couldn’t have gotten luckier in life than to have you as our Nana. You kept us safe, loved and well fed. Your door was literally always open for us. We’ll miss you giggling your way through, trying to tell a joke without being able to get the punchline. Our love always, Michael, Daniel, Joshua and Kate.

Dearest Mum & Nana, You were the first to hold us and we were your last x. There is no bigger gift a mother can give her children than unconditional love and we were blessed to feel so deeply loved by you. Our hearts are broken, but we know you are now in the arms of Dad and Hed, so take our love with you and hold them tight until we meet again. Your ever loving daughter Own, Steven, Nick, James and Bub xox

My beautiful Nana, who showed us and taught us love every single second of our lives. I promise to barrack hard for our beloved pies. I’ll see you in the soup. Love you always, “Nicklebee”
