Today mum we said goodbye to a mum who has neurtured us , has always done her very best for us.
We are going to miss you, and our lives are now changed for ever.
I never thought that at the age of 16 when I lost my mum that I could have loved someone as much as I loved my mother, you helped me over the years .
You taught me to cook,keep a clean home( including ocd! ), you taught how to care for my family your grandchildren.
We had fun together, and we had fights, but we knew we loved each other at the end of the day.
You not only became my mother in law, but also my step mother, and I could not have asked for a better replacement for my own mum who I loved dearly.
Thankyou for giving my dad so many happy years.
Sleep in peace you beautiful lady , I love you and I miss you , and my heart is broken.
With all my love mellanie xxxx

Nanny,
I have nothing but great memories of the time I was able to spend with you as a kid. I vividly remember opening Christmas gifts at your house, and all the love you always showed me when we would visit.

As I think about some of the memories of you that I have, I can’t help but feel grateful to have had you as my nanny. To have been around you for a few minutes is to know that you were a hard worker. Wether it was cleaning up after Shep, keeping an immaculate house, or cooking food for everyone, you were always on the go. You gave that work ethic and sense of pride to my dad, and I’d like to think I was a recipient of some of it too. My dad means everything to me, and you helped make him the man he his. Thank you.

I remember when you came to visit us and you held my baby, Kaylee. She was being fussy, and you knew based on the color of her lips, she had gas. I thought to myself, how can she see a difference in the color of her lips, because I couldn’t. Sure enough, after a short period of patting her on the back she burped, and she stopped being fussy. It’s those small details that let you know when someone has a great heart and great level of care for others.

I wish we could have spent more time together, but I am thankful for the memories I have of you. Rest In Peace, Nanny.

Love, Christopher

Nanny,
Growing up there was no greater feeling than being at your house. You always went above and beyond to take care of all of us. You would make sure you had our crisps, pop, alpen, crumpets and whatever else we fancied. You loved to fuss over us and we knew it. Even though we moved to Holland, you are in so many of my childhood memories. The Christmases at your house with all of the Aunts, uncles, cousins and other family gathered around. Those were such fun times. I have so many fond memories, it hard to pick a favorite. Like the time I went with you and Cliff to a pub in the country side and I got to sit on your lap playing slot machines. Also, sitting on your bed playing with your musical puppies. Watching Mary Poppins in your freshly cleaned livingroom with Cliff puffing on a cigar while you were cooking. I fondly remember your laugh when one of us kids were naughty and you'd say "cheeky little buggar" I could go on and on. Once we moved to America, we would write and talk on the phone and you would give me advice. I looked forward to those calls and letters. Your family was everything to you and you worked so hard all your life. Now you can rest and know that you left behind your sons who followed in your footsteps. Hard working, loving, family oriented men. Till we meet again Nanny. I love you.

Condolences to all of the Goodrum/Binley/Marshall/Dunkley families. Sending love especially to Pat’s boys, Anthony, Chris & Lol and their lovely wives. Pat was a hard worker and devoted Mother and never missed an opportunity to laugh and dance when she was young. Now it’s time for her to rest because her work is done. Rest In Peace, Pat. God bless you.

I have many memories of Pat - she was a strong, funny woman who was the heart of her family. Your “boys” are living testaments to your love and strength. I will always fondly remember you yelling “Coo eeeee” through the letterbox at Chris & Claire’s House! I’m glad we got to spend time with you here across the pond when you visited with Lol & Mell - great reunion with your teenage partner in crime, Margaret Mason. You will leave a huge hole in your family’s hearts - one I hope they will fill over time with laughter of happy memories. I’m sure the Man Upstairs had a double vodka to welcome you at the Pearly Gates. Your work is done, Patricia Davina - time for you to rest now. God bless you and the whole family. Love, Margaret

Nanny...
Being half a world away never stopped the love I have for you. You were such an incredibly strong and caring person all throughout your life, always looking after others. From raising your own siblings to raising a beautiful family, you always put others before yourself.
Even in simple ways, you had such a massive, caring heart.
I remember when I came to visit in my late teenage years; you sat and ironed my knickers haha and washed my hair in the kitchen sink in the basin because it was ridiculously long and impossible. You made sure that “my favorite”, Vol-au-vents, were made at the New Year’s eve gathering. I enjoyed sitting in the kitchen with you and Cliff as he and I sat working the puzzles in the paper and chatting away with you. My time with you was always cherished.
I always looked forward to receiving letters from you as we wrote back-and-forth to each other every week for years. I still have all of the newspaper clippings of Spice Girls that you sent to me because I was a wee bit obsessed.
I so wish I could have gone back to England more than what I did but I am very glad that I was able to spend a chunk of Summer many years ago only an hour away from you.
You raised three incredible men who love you so very much. I see your strength and compassion shine through in my Dad and so, as much as I look up to him, I know where those admirable traits come from. You will be greatly missed Nanny. Lots of love always xxx

Chris, Anthony, Lawrence and families,

Sending deepest condolences and much love to all of you. Pat was a lovely woman and a pillar of strength to all of you. She lived a good life and left an indelible mark on all of you. She also left a part of herself in each one of you, and in the days, weeks and months ahead, I hope you can hold onto that and keep her close to your hearts.

From across the pond we send you big hugs and lots and lots of love. Julie, Roberto ("Bert") and family xxx

Goodbye Nana. Love you very much. Thank you for the role that you played in my upbringing. Your house was always a place that I felt loved and happy. When I was being told off at home I would declare that I was running away to your house. You were an amazing cook and beautiful, strong woman with such a big heart. Miss you.Xxx
