  1. Dearest Aunty Bet
    I will miss you always you were the most beautiful person
    The memories you gave me are priceless
    I can’t believe I won’t hear that infectious laugh of yours
    Or hear one of your awesome jokes
    Or just hear you say I love you
    My heart is broken
    Sleep well Aunty Bet you deserve it

  2. Dear Aunty Betty, I’ll miss you so much. On our daily walks around the lakes talking to all the dogs and everyone we passed, looking for the bats, even one who poohed on you, you loved seeing them, taking you driving and as you said to me, I have the wheel so we go wherever you drive. Taking you out to Shelley’s to get your nails done and you finally got to have some colour on them.
    All our little chats over a cupola after our walks.
    So many memories. Love you so much.
    Dave,Raine and family. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  3. Oh GNan, what can I say? Thank you for being a part of our lives. Thank you for keeping Nanna Bailey company. Thanks for your hugs, for your cheekiness. Thanks for being a wonderful woman who touched so many lives. Thanks for being an awesome Nanna and Great Nanna to my Bailey cousins and for letting me call you Nanna as we grew up. I hope you’re getting up to mischief wherever you are, and don’t forget to put in an order for a good man for me!
    I love you so much GNan xxooxx

  4. Dear Aunty Betty It saddens me that we could not get to see you to say our goodbyes and although we did not get to see each other often, I feel that we are all part of each other connected by family ties. Sending our love to Wendy, Bobby and families.

  12. Bett/GNan,

    I am going to miss you.

    You are one of the best people I know, you always made me smile and laugh. You made me feel part of your family and I consider you a big part of mine.

    I remember sharing a room with you in Port Douglas, you made a comment about not having to worry about my snoring as your good ear was facing away from me. Turned out that I was the one that had to worry about the snoring in the room lol.

    I spent hours trying to find the right mahjong game on the computer for you, and so many attempts at making you the perfect cup of tea.

    I’ll remember, love and miss you always.
