    Dear Grandma,
    I remember being welcomed into your house every Boxing Day as if we were your own Grandchildren.
    I remember your passionfruit drinks and chocolate ‘Christmas trees’. And who can forget the Lump rice.
    Growing up Boxing Day in Bendigo was one of my favourite parts of the year.
    I am so sorry to have lost you.

    Tiny in stature with dancing eyes and a most weloming smile
    I will miss her at St Mary’s.
    Now with the Lord.

    Pascale et Philippe présentent à toute la famille et aux proches d’ Hermione leurs très sincères condoléances.

    nous gardons d’Hermione le souvenir d’une dame très digne et lumineuse.

    Our deepest sympathy to everyone.
    Aunty was an extraordinarily kind hearted and gracious lady.

    Our deepest condolences to the Weragodas for the loss of their wonderful grandma and mum.
    I remember her as a lovely lady always ready with a beautiful smile and looking most elegant in whatever she’s dressed in, especially in her beautiful saree.
    Glad to have met this wonderful person whom we lovingly address as Aunty.
    Thank you for being a part of our early years in Australia.
    Goodbye Aunty Hermione.
    Till we meet again.
