  1. Dear Trudy,
    We didn’t have the chance to know your mother, but we know she must have been someone special to have raised a great daughter like you. You were a joy to your mother all your life, and a huge comfort to her over these past few months. It’s sad to lose her, but we hope you feel good about the way you were there for her.
    Thinking of you during this sad time.
    Elly, George, Achilles and Peta-Nicole xx

    I had the pleasure of looking after Nancye in a professional manner but after the first visit I knew she would become a friend rather then a patient!
    She was a wonderful warm, caring and gorgeous lady that I will miss terribly in so many ways.
    I’m so grateful to have had Nancye in my life and I will miss our chats and laughs, many laughs and then more chatting.
    Rest In Peace beautiful lady
