  5. Aunty Rob. I have so many fond memories of me coming to stay with you and your family. You always had the tablets ready me because I was allergic to your cats. I love to get out in the garden with you and weed. You will always have a special place in my heart. Deepest condolences to Uncle Dickie, Andrew, Peter, Chris and all their families. Love to all. Roslyn and Family. Xx

  6. My best memories with Nana were when she would make her delicious cherry ripe slice and let me steal the extra slices. Another memory was when she would bribe me with Japanese snacks to get me to sit on my chair. But finally I will never forget when she gave me warm Nana hugs that I get to keep forever.

  12. Dear Mum,
    I have heard about you over the many years I have known your wonderful son, Peter, and I think I was able to speak to you at least once. You have left behind a wonderful family as your legacy. You will never be forgotten. Enjoy the love and light that the next life brings, and I hope your family always remembers that there’s no such place as far away…

  14. Nana was a loving grandmother who would always have a smile on her face. My fondest memories of her were spent in the kitchen, being taught how to bake her chocolate chip cookies. I will always keep nana and our time together close to my heart.
