Please know our prayers are with you during this most difficult time. Our prayer is that God will give you the peace and strength you need today and in the days to come. She is in Heaven now, which is where we all long to be one day. She is healed and has seen Jesus. What a blessing that is to know. She is pain and worry free

I am standing upon the seashore. A ship at my side spreads her white sails to the morning breeze and starts out for the blue ocean. She is an object of beauty and strength. I stand and watch her until at length she hangs like a speck of white cloud just where the sea and sky come to mingle with each other. Then someone at my side says: "there, she is gone!" "gone where?" gone from my sight. That is all. She is just as large in mast and hull and spar as she was when she left my side and she is just as able to bear the load of living freight to her destined port. Her diminished size is in me, not in her. And just at the moment when someone at my side says: "there, she is gone!" There are other eyes watching with great excitement of her coming, and other voices ready to take up the glad shout: "Here she comes!" Henry Van Dyke

I shall always hold fond and cherished memories of playing in Nannys yard, swinging on the fire hose swing, or on her front porch, attempting to play the piano in her hallway, and joining in with a host of other children in Easter Egg Hunts in the front yard. She was actually the grandmother of my cousins, but I always felt both loved and welcomed in her home and heart, and remember photos of me up on the wall along with the other children. Nanny will be missed by everyone who loves her, but it was time for her to spread her love from a Heavenly location!

No finer example of a good wife, good mother, friend and most of all great Sister In Law. My dear brother will be lost without his sweetheart of 66 years. I hope all the family & friends will keep him busy so his mind and body can rest well.
