Still can’t believe you are gone but wherever you are I hope you and Pa are having lots of catch ups. I have been so blessed to have you as my Nan. You will always have a special place in my heart. Heaven has definitely gained a very special angel.
Love Maddie. ❤️😇February 15, 2021
Never Gone, Never Far, In my Heart is where you are ❤️
God looked around his garden
And found an empty place
He then looked down upon the earth
And saw your tired face
He put his arms around you
And lifted you to rest.
God’s garden must be beautiful,
He always takes the best.
He knew that you were suffering
He knew you were in pain
He knew that you would never
Get well on earth again.
He saw the road was getting rough
And the hills were hard to climb.
So he closed your weary eyelids
And said, “Peace be thine”.
It broke our hearts to lose you
But you didn’t go alone.
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home.
I miss you terribly each and every day that goes by Nan, I will forever miss saying as I approach mildura “Nan put the kettle on” finally at peace, a well earned reward for the worlds best Nan Dura ❤️
Until we meet again

Hard to believe that you are gone, you were such a special person and were adored by so many. It’s a shame I wasn’t old enough to do a lot with you, however I cherish the moments I do have. You were and still are such a big inspiration to me, and I thank you for everything you have done for me and the family. Heaven has gained a very special angel, rest easy Gran.🕊

Aunty Dot will always be in our hearts and minds. She was always a special Aunty to me and my children. When I told them she had passed they each told me a special memory they had of her, from the famous hedgehog slice to the birthday cards well into their teens ( she never forgot). She will be missed by many but never forgotten. All our love Gayle, John and the Natoli BoysFebruary 22, 2021
Dot, or “Goddard” as I used to call her, was a much loved babysitter of mine almost 40 years ago. I have such fond memories of her (peanut butter and honey white bread sandwiches with the crust cut off and playing uno). I can still hear her beautiful gentle voice in my head. She made such a positive impression on me of the importance of kindness and generosity. Remembered always. Suzie Rogers (nee Iser)February 23, 2021
Our dear Dot. A treasured friend, support and carer to generations of our family. Cheryl and John IserFebruary 23, 2021
I will always remember going to ‘Dot’s house’ for the weekly card games and lollies. Farewell Dot. Will still think of you every time we play Uno.February 23, 2021
Our beautiful Nana…Thank you for your love, kindness and ever understanding heart… The overflowing treasure trove of memories I have of you from my childhood and as an adult. You have left an indelible legacy of love within my heart. You demonstrated love to so many, always giving and forgiving. Making each and every one of us feeling special for who we were. You’ve been my strength and given me guidance and encouragement in my life. You’ve been a wonderful example to me. I can never exhaust the stories of times we’ve shared together that in all we could do is just laugh… about the absurdity of life! The joy of the Lord was your strength. I know where you are, you are home where everything will be as new again; I will be seeing you there when Jesus comes for me, I love you and have missed you for the longest time. Only then will we have all the answers, only then will I find out if there is Nana’s famous hedgehog slice at the banquet. Enjoy the singing Nana, so long and God Bless. Well done good and faithful servant.
Psalm 68:5-6 NIV
5 A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows,
is God in his holy dwelling.
6 God sets the lonely in families,[a]
he leads out the prisoners with singing;
We love you lots and lotsFebruary 23, 2021

Dear Sandra, John and your family,
Josie and I were saddened to hear of Dot’s passing. We have such found memories of her friendship were our Mum Rosa Dichiera and the fun and time they shared together. She was so warm and generous and such a lady.
Like Dot, Mum in the end had dementia. They have both left us know; but will live on in our memories and our life.
Our love and thoughts at this time,February 28, 2021
