Nana will always be remembered for her hugs, the twinkle in her eye and of course her whitebait patties! We all have such fond memories of the moments we had with her.
As I have grown up, she has seen me get married and became Special Nana to Lucas and Adam.
I will always have fond memories of sneaking into her bed for morning cuddles, and holidays in Kaikoura with the caravan. More recently, seeing Lucas go for a ride wirh his Special Nana on the mobility scooter, and talking about Angry Birds, will be fun times remembered and cherished. The chance for Adam to see his Special Nana twice is such a blessing, and we are all sad to have to say goodbye.
Nana was always so generous and patient, and she always remembered what was happening in our lives. We had great times playing Skip-Bo, cooking, and playing at her house in Waimangaroa. Nana had a great sense of humour and still joked about things, even when she was unwell.
We love our Nana and Special Nana very much, and she will be missed and remembered as the small lady with the big heart.
