Nanny, As a kid growing up whenever there was a time my Mum and Dad weren't there, it was you and Poppy. My heart is heavy and when i try to describe how much i miss and adored you, words aren't enough, if only i could give you one more hug. Although we didn't see you often in the last few decades due to distance, we loved you with all of our hearts. Justene came to think of you as Nanny and misses you terribly with all her heart too. Your great grand children Xander & Matilda may be a little young to understand right now but i know Xander will miss playing cards with you on your visits. Please be at peace and enjoy eternity in the embrace of all those you find in the afterlife be it family or friends. Say hi ti Pop for us and feel free to look in on us from up there now and then. I know you'll keep an eye on all of us with love. xoxoxo

With profound sadness and deepest respect for my long time friend Mavis. I will always remember our lengthy talks, much laughter and the devotion you had for your family. They will always be surrounded with your love. xx

Mavis – A beautiful lady who will be so sadly missed by everyone she touched. It is said ‘Old friends are the best friends’. Having worked side by side for 13 years, we shared our joys, woes, happiness and sadness. A true, enduring and loving friendship to this day. I am sure you are now singing with the Angels in our Dear Lord’s choir in Heaven. “To live in hearts we leave behind, is not to die”. – Donald Campbell. Rest in peace, Dear Friend. Bev. x

In memory of a wonderful, inspirational lady. RIP Mavis.
