Nana, none of us will ever fall short of a beautiful and joyful memory of you. You are such a kind and generous soul and I know that God now has one of the best angels he could ever wish for now, and it’s fair to say that the whole district will deeply miss your amazing cakes and slices! Thank you for being such a beautiful nan and thank you for just being you! I will forever cherish the memories of you and will forever tell my growing children how they had the kindest and most beautiful great grandma that they could wish for! I love you Nan, and give pop a kiss for me up there. ❤️
