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.
