  1. Fond memories of Brenda—her warm personality,happy smile and kind nature. We were kindergarten Mums together( Terry Street) and shared the driving and the friendship. Anna Sublet, Fiona and Miffy Swain are in a Kinder photo I have.Remembering Ian and the boys too.We lived at 10 Sefton Place, Camberwell. They were such happy days. So glad Brenda had such an interesting and adventurous life–loved the Taxi adventure.
    With Best Wishes to Fiona, Bruce , Ian and families—Pamela Sublet( Anna’s Mum).

    Beautiful service.

    Heartfelt words.

    Sending you all love and light.

    Brenda lit up a room with her humour, quick wit and enthusiasm.

    She was an absolute delight and such fond memories.

    So memorable in the old days at your abode (101 Canterbury Road), having a cuppa with Brenda, our chats (and hanging out with Robert (Bob) the cat).

    We celebrate her life.

    An absolute privilege knowing your mum.

    Enriched by her over the journey.

    Brenda was always welcoming and kind.

    The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo each Christmas will now have extra meaning!

  7. Beautiful service. Loved hearing all the stories about your Mum and the familiar hymns!
    Thank you for sharing it all online.

  8. Hi you McIntosh families.
    You must be pleased with the service, I’m sure Brenda and Ian would be most impressed , not least with the technology. Loved learning new things about your Mum .. Always knew of her love of music and bridge, and first hand knowledge of her expertise in the kitchen, a wonderful cook. Knew none of her prowess as a swimmer . The family remembrances were absolutely wonderful , you all did so very well.
    and the photos brought so much back to life.
    Much love , Jo and Donald.

  9. Dear Bruce, Ian, Fi and your families

  14. Dearest Fi, Ian and Bruce.

    Such a beautiful and personal service for your dear Mum. The story of her life so represents what we remember of her and you all spoke so well. The story of her life, her 72 year friendship and selfless culinary delights were a joy to hear.

    It has felt strange up until now to not be there in person for you all today, and Fi for you to be so far away, we are so sorry. Being online today helped us feel we were there, I know you couldn’t see us but we could see you all, join in the hymns, stand and pray with you.

    Please accept our sincere and heartfelt condolences.

    Much love from Cam, Charlie Oscar and I to you all.

  15. Dear Bruce,
    What a beautiful service, I wish I could have been there for you, Kate, Millie and Skye. Your Mum was a beautiful lady and it sounds like she was full of life and cheekiness. She also sounds like a legendary cook, although I am not sure about the ox tongue! I hope you cherish all the wonderful memories you have of your darling Mum and your Dad. You, Ian and Fiona did a superb job with the eulogy and gave an insight into what a great lady your Mum was. Thinking of you lots and sending you love. Georgia xx
