My "Nanny" was the sweetest, kindest, and most wonderful grandmother you could have. I will cherish memories of my times with her....from the time I was a small child throughout my adult life. She was the strength of our family and loved her children and grandchildren dearly. We will miss her but I know we will all be together again one day. We love you, Mike and Debbie

She was my Mom! My Friend, My strong Rock! It goes without saying that she was Kind, Loving, & Sensitive to all my needs. I will always love here very much! I now have all those cherished memories to look back on! Especially now- Christmas!! Memories of happy years gone by. They will come back to me & keep me warm inside. They mean so much to me. But I know that she is with our Lord & Saviour Jesus Christ- "Right Now" What a grand reunion she must be having! Mom is with my Dad, my Brothers-Jimmy-Larry! Theres also her Mom & Dad. Can you imagine the Joy in her heart. But I know she is seeing us & she wants us to carry on until our time comes. I Love You MaMa! "We will see you again". She is a place called Heaven- an indescribable place-its beauty we cant see now. The Bible says in 1 Cor. 2:9--"Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man the things which God hath prepared for them that love him."---Im sad but also Happy for my Mom! But I will get strength from the word of God to help me & the memories of a Godly Mom!
