Dawn,was my Sister, although my Sisters were older than me,they use to spoil me ,Dawn came to have lunch with me on my first day of school ,and I cried to go home so she took me home,only to get into trouble by our Mum and was told never to do so again ..i was born about 13 years after Dawn ,so I never got to play with them ,but as I got older I use to go stay with her and Bill on holidays ,on one of those times David and I were told to take the silver beet in and wash it for Dinner ,so we did in soapy water ,I don’t think we had it for Dinner that night ,these are just a couple of many things we got up to on holidays but I always loved going there ....I will always remember her with all my love ....

My heart goes out to all of her Children ,Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren ,you all did an amazing job today and she wo7ld be enormously proud of you all ....Reunited with Bill,Mum ,Dad Pat and all the ones that she is now having one of those coffee’s and a Smoke .with

I have such fond memories of staying at Aunty Dawn's house (with Nana Goudie), when I was growing up. It was such a busy house, filled with love. I remember the beautiful garden, the birds and Aunty Dawn tricking me into eating rabbit!! Like Nan, Aunty Dawn had strong views and values. She was never afraid to tell you exactly what she thought. Most of all I remember how much she loved her family.

Today was a lovely celebration of Aunty Dawn's life. My thought are with David, Jenny, Jayne, Billy, Geoffrey, Leslie, Tracey, Brian, Cathy and their families on the loss of your Mum/Nan. She will be forever remembered through all of you.

What can I say except Thank you. Thank you for raising such an amazing man to be my husband. Thank you for making me a part of your huge family. Thank you for being such a doting nana to our wonderful sons and Thank you for being the doting Granny to Mia and Jaxon. Can’t believe you let them call you that. Rest peacefully now back with the love of your life Our love for you will go on and on x

Nanna, words can’t describe how much we are going to miss you.
We are going to miss our chats, listening to all the family stories you use to tell us while Mia and Jax played with the dogs and ate all your lollies!
The values of love, honesty and loyalty that you instilled in our entire family are values we hope we can continue to instil into our children.
We are honoured that Mia and Jax were able to have quality time with their Granny (not that I would dare call you that!) and say g’day to Pop.

Nanna, Where do I even start? I’ll never be able to thank you enough for everything . I am greatful for the time we got to spend together. I will miss our coffee’s and chat’s. Malen and I will miss you

Nana, you will be missed by everyone. I will miss our long chats while dad is outside doing stuff or complaining about my coffee I make you both, or when I come up and see you by myself, and I spend all day with you. I will treasure these moments for ever. I’m glad your out of pain and now with pop. Your forever in my heart. Thank you very everything you did for me and Brett when we were kids. I love you nan xoxox

Farewell Nan,

Although our times of seeing each other as I had my own family were brief and at times lengthy in between visits. I have so many fond memories of our times together: family Sunday roasts as a child, piling in the car to drive to Kyneton. It was nice coming up to visit and having a chat and catching up whilst the kids played with your dogs.

I was so lucky to have you support me though the rough patches in my life and no matter what I could always rely on you to lend me an ear or a shoulder to cry on.

As our children were born you were delighted to meet them and welcome them into our family with open arms. No matter what you would always offer your words of wisdom whether we wanted to hear them or not.

I was quite saddened at the fact that I realised I would never be able to have a conversation with you again but it took the wise words of Emily to remind me that even though I cant talk to you anymore or physically see you. You will forever be in our hearts.

You can rest easy now Nan and I'm sure Pop would be so excited to be reunited with you.

We love you and will never forget you.Love Julie, Nathan,Noah and Emily xxxx
