Another sadness in my family today, my nanny passed away. I am grateful as she was in pain, but very sad as she was such a lovely nanny.

Here she is being the wonderful person she was:

With her son Paul and daughter Jeanette

In Trafalgar Square a number of years ago

Nanny and I in her old flat in Elmers End

Dinner with my Dad and the family in Twickenham in 2012

With my aunt Jeanette on the same day


Brenda Hawkes, née Ward, formerly Brenda Ruffle, 19th September 1930 to 8th May 2014.
