1. I am so proud to have been able to call you my mum.

    I will love you always ❤️

    I will miss you forever

    In the words I used every day, goodnight Mumma, love you xxx

  2. Nan,

    It’s said the hardest word to say is “sorry”. They’re wrong, it’s Goodbye.

    It’s the most difficult thing I’ve ever had to say, but it’s the one I’m most grateful for getting the opportunity for.

    Thank you for years of memories, support and love. For helping raise me, teaching me right from wrong and always having my back.

    I love you and I will never forget you xxx

  3. My daughter Gemma has already left a heartfelt message for Nanny Maura, so how to add to that. My own mother died when I was young and Gemma was only a baby , and the sadness I felt that she wouldn’t have the love that my own mother would have showered on her was hard to understand. My mother was simply the loveliest person ever. A couple of years later I was introduced to Maura by my childrens mother – God bless her. If ever there were two people cut from the same cloth it was my mother and Maura , god works in mysterious ways. I decided to asked Maura if she would do me the honour of being my childrens adopted nanny and without hesitation she said yes. The rest is history. Nanny Maura you have my eternal thanks and gratitude you were without doubt a very special person . I would also like to thank her own family : James,Michael,Marion, Pauline & Desmond for the love that they showed to my children and a special mention to Jim Murphy for putting up with it God bless. Nanny Maura you were loved , cherished and you will be sorely missed R.I.P.

  4. There are not enough words to say how much you mean to me. I will be forever grateful for being able to call you Nanny Maura and will love you always and forever. XXX

  5. Let me start by introducing myself ! My name is Gemma and I am Nanny Maura’s oldest “adopted” granddaughter. Let me tell you how this happened. Many years ago, I won’t tell you how long ago as it will give my age away ! BUT my dads own mother had passed away when I was very young. He wanted his children to feel the love of a grandmother and asked Nanny Maura if she would be that person in our life. Without hesitation she agreed and the rest is history, she ended up with 3 granddaughters and a grandson ! I bet she didn’t expect that when she agreed. But over the years that’s what she was to all of us, we never knew any different, to us she was Nanny Maura. We were never treated any differently to her biological grandchildren. Many memories but let me give you a couple as not enough space or time ! From our holidays down the caravan in Clacton (to which we take our own children) to being fed cat food, we’ll that’s what she told me it was, was actually corned beef ! Teaching me and my sisters to knit. When we had our children they then became her grandchildren and love her just as much as we do. Me, My Dad, My sisters and my brother will be eternally great full to the love that Nanny Maura showed as and also her family for welcoming us and loving us. You will be forever loved and always our Nanny Maura xxx
