  2. Nanna. To hold your hand over the years and in your last days was a privilege. To my kids you were endearingly “Old Nanna”, to me you are such a special friend and much loved part of our family. I’ll miss our endless chats and always treasure the memories of sharing recipes, and our thoughts on everyone and everything. My mum adored you, as we all do. We will think of you every time we make sausage rolls or your famous chocolate cream puffs. Not as well as you of course. Loved dearly and never forgotten.

  3. Auntie Mary, What a well lived life!! Auntie Mary endured it all. Life, love, loss. So many memories, and such an amazing person. Always, ‘have you had lunch dear, have a cup of tea, I will make you a sandwich “, always had time for everyone whatever time you called on her. We are all better people for having Auntie Mary in our lives, Iris, Clint and Jess, Lori, Max, Jack, Charlie and Mia. Xx

  4. Dear Norma and John and your families. Deepest sympathy on the passing of your mother. My memories go back to coming to your house over the road after primary school and your mum would be in the kitchen always making something.
    An amazing 98 years.

  5. Mum and Dad thought the World of Auntie Mary, as did us kids. So many memories, some of the standouts were… your warm welcome, your long hair, climbing over/through fences in your late 70s like a school kid feeding out hay, mouth watering brisket, a warm hug, and, a smile that would light up your whole face. “Old School through and through, there’ll never be another”. Such fond memories (i loved you Auntie Mary) Gordon Hogan.
