I think of you most days Fanny. You and mum are in photos on my desk, by the bed, on the shelves, on the walls... You have a beautiful grand-daughter now who (like you) will be her own strong lovely character! Miss you and mum all the time, all my love, Ginny xxx

On this anniversary mom I would like to say how much it would have meant for you to have met your granddaughter. In her I see you and Kitty. She would have loved you like you would have her; and though her is a happy reminder of all that you both meant to us.

Still thinking about you often Fanny. One image of you and mum in Toronto where she was at her happiest being with you - both giggling so much about something - mum was crying with laughter, you with an innocent smile as if to say "It wasn't Me" xxx

Fanny was a loyal & caring Godmother to me for more than 50 yrs even though I live in the UK. She was the midwife who delivered me in a little village in Hertfordshire all those years ago, & she & my mother were friends for life from then on. F never forgot my birthday or stopped caring about me, even after my mother, Hetty, died in 1989. She was dear, kind, big souled.I am truly grateful.

Dear Al and Mike, Barry and I feel very fortunate to have met Fanny. There could not be a more genuine, warm person. Without her, the world is a sadder place and our thoughts and prayers are with both of you. We hope you find comfort in all your many memories. Janet and Barry.

Fan - to me, and to others, you were always warm and kind and gentle. As I was growing up it was inspiring to think that you cared for the world as an elegant feminist with a social conscience :). So thanks Fanny for being you. You are missed. xxxxxxxx love Suze
Posted by Virginia West on 11th November 2012
Fanny, I am glad that in the end you were able to choose when to join Anna, Mike, Tony, Gerry, mum and Kitty, as well as other friends and loved ones. On behalf of mum who couldn't say goodbye herself - she wanted to be with you so much in the months before she died. She missed talking to you every day as her twin and special soulmate.A big hug and all my love always, Ginny xxxxxxxx

To Al and Family! Though Al, I only got to know Fanny through the bridge club, I will always remember the respect that she showed me as a person! We had a mutual like for each other and everytime she would come to bridge at our house, we had a bond that was natural. I will miss her and God Bless you and your family!
