Dear Aunt Wynn. How blessed. I am to have had you in my life. How glad I am you came here to live and I got to know you. You taught me how to be a mother and a grandmother. You were a wonderful role model for me growing up. I love you very much. And you will always be in my heart.
My darling sister was always the adventurous one, I would have travelled to the end of the Earth with her, she even persuaded me to leave Ireland for London. We had such wonderful times together. I love and loved her so much. R.I.P. darling Winnie. Rose and Maurice

My Dear Aunt Wynn - you were the best aunt a nephew could want for. You all ways had a smile on your face and gave me the best aunty hugs - sometimes a little tight but hey I was only 10 and a half when you left UK.I remember coming over and hanging out with David and Jane - who was my bestie, and ironically getting me into lots of mischief :-) . I remember Uncle Eddie's ironman handshake and his stories and having so much fun with your family. I did get to see you quite a few times through the years and was always pleased that we would be seeing you. You aways made a point of showing me the little dog shaped stone that I gave you when you left for the US of A, quite often when I was trying to impress a new girlfriend or trying to look cool you would get the stone out and tell the story of being at the airport. At the time, I remember looking at you and you knew that you were embarrassing me but you just laughed. I love you for that it was a cool thing ..... and hey once the new girlfriend even told me how cute it was to be giving stones to my favourite aunty. Thank you for being a beautiful woman and a beautiful, kind, smiley aunt even with the rather tight hugs. We will miss you but your memory is in our hearts. Jeff aged 53 (and a 1/2) xox
