Children 'shattered' by death of royal nurse

The children of royal nurse Jacintha Saldanha have paid tribute to her in the order of service:

Our mother, kind hearted, generous and a well respected woman in both of our lives. You were the core of the family who kept us together. In times of difficulty you showed us the way forward to happiness and success.

Your priority for us was a good education and a bright future. You taught us right from wrong which we appreciate. You worked tirelessly to give us everything that we have today. When we achieved good grades and merit, your pat on our backs encouraged us more.

We will miss your laughter, the loving memories and the good times we had together. The house is an empty dwelling without your presence. We are shattered and there's an unfillable void in our lives. We love you Mum, Sleep in peace and please watch over us until we meet again in heaven. We will always love you and keep you close to our heart.
