Your beautiful smile and the many many hugs we shared during that time, we will never forget. We love and adore you and miss you so much already. Reunited now with dad.
    With all our love, Derek and Pam ❤️❤️

  4. It was a sad morning when Robert called to announce Aunty Brenda’s passing. I wish to send our condolences, (DURIE family) to the BRADEN family, but appropriate words escape me. Instead I pass on a few lines composed by another.

  5. To our beautiful Grandma,
    You were one of a kind…fun, loving, humble, loyal, strong and so incredibly proud of your family. You always had time for each and everyone one of us and attracted people to you because of your kind nature and big heart. You left an impression on everyone you met and they’d all walk away with a smile. I’ve loved you my whole life and can’t imagine no longer having you here. Josh and Charlie were so blessed having their great-grandma to know and love and Clayton will always hold special memories of you in his heart. We love you Grandma now and forever xox

  6. You were one of a kind “Mum Braden”
    Full of fun,laughter and always welcoming to those that visited.
    The Sunday dinners, the memorable sharing of updates and ever positive words shared at the table, and the tea readings, how true were these.

    Can’t thank you enough for the positive role modelling as a mother, grandmother to my three children. Blessed, good and faithful servant. A one way not stop to the Lords house is most deserving.

    Your memory will always live on in my heart

    Until we meet again, thanks for giving all to my family
