Hi nan it's only me, I can not put in to words how much I miss you, I shed a little tear every night, but on two occasions now has been very hard, Archie's parents evening was outstanding an she got a reward at school, normally Archie's first words would be can I call nan and tell her, and you would be telling him how clever and very proud you are of him, we love and miss you everyday nan

Nan,

Look down upon us and smile, for now you live on in us. Know this, you truly touched all our hearts. I hope you swell with pride, as each and everyone of us hold you dear, our memories and lives enriched with your kindness and love.

Yes you have departed, but deep down I know you are there. Why change something you have always done? Making sure those you love are OK.

Although it hurts, I take comfort that you are now without fear and pain; one day we will meet again.

The tears will dry, the pain will dull, but your memory will love forever in our hearts and minds.

A true testament to an amazing woman.

Love John

Auntie Nellie,

What more can i say? Only that you will be truly missed by me and that's for sure, i will cherish all the memories that i have of you forever. You may be gone but you will never be forgotten i will make sure of that, remembering all the good times we had especially on Coopers Road and new years eve when you was legless and i had to take you home in my car. One thing i bet your glad about is that you won't have to suffer Daddy ringing you up in the middle of the night asking for me anymore, i bet he will still be ringing your house phone though thinking your still there. I bet Nanny's happy now she has you with her, make sure you look out for each other up there and both of you continue to look down and guide all of our family. Sleep tight Angel until we meet again. Your Niece Nicola xxxxxxxxxxxx

My mother's faithful companions and confidants even in the most difficult times. my mum dedicated her life to caring and providing for her children both physically and emotionally. She always seem to know how to help us to overcome problems and thrive in spite of them. A mother's love is irreplaceable, which makes losing her to death an incredibly painful experience. While your daughters carry within their hearts a dull and lasting ache where they once felt love and security, it is important that we continue searching for the happiness that mother always desired for us. Love you mum, miss you ever day, I wish we could have you back, but i know that cannot happen, you was the most amazing mum anyone could have, everyone who know you loved you, but till we met again Love you xxx

Dearest Nan,
You were the most amazing woman I was ever lucky enough to have in my life, thank you, we were so lucky to have you, I guess you were too good for this world and prehaps you were needed elsewhere. Wherever you are, make sure you watch over us and remember to keep my girls safe. We love you so very much, missing you every single day.
Love forever xxxxx

Dear Auntie Nellie, it is with great sadness that we will say a final goodbye to you in the following week. After I spent many years, too busy to connect with extended family, you, reminded me of what I had been missing when you were there for my Mum in her last days and with us, helping us remember the good times after she had passed. You and your family embraced what was left of ours and for that I will always be grateful. Lots of Love from all of us, you are greatly missed xxx
