Nanny, Thank you so much for raising me and taking care of me from a Infant until today. You are the strongest Woman that I know, I wish I could be more like you. You have fought for so long through all the sickness you encountered over the years. Everyone thought you would pass on to be with Pappaw after he died, but you fought a long time. The last week that I have sat and watched you while you were sick, has been the hardest thing I have ever had to do in my life. Watching you until the last day, was heart breaking. I am just glad that I could be there with you everyday and every night. I can never thank you enough for all that you did for me. You raised me and put me through school, you taught me everything I know. You made me to be the person I am today. Even though I will never be as strong as you. I will always admire and cherish you. I love you with all my Heart, you were like my own Mother and you will never be forgotten. There will not be a day that goes by that I won't think of you. I will miss you so much. I was hoping that you would still be here to watch me turn 40 years old in eleven days, and we would be able to celebrate your 92nd Birthday with you. I am just happy and thankful that I had you in my life for the past 39 years. I feel better knowing that you did not suffer and that you went peaceful in your sleep. Now you can go and be with Pappaw, as he has been in Heaven waiting for you with open arms. I know you will be watching over us all; Morning, Afternoon, Evening and Night. You will be our Guardian Angel looking down on us from above. Heaven gained one special Woman today. Thank you for loving me and for being the best Grandmother anyone could have ever had. I will hold you close to my heart, and will miss you so much. But, I will always know you are with me. I love you so much Nanny! Now you can finally rest in peace, no more suffering. You will be missed by many. I will always be thinking of you! Rest in peace Nanny!! Love you forever and always! Your Grandaughter Karen! <3

Nanny, From the first moment that I walked into your life, you made me part of your family. I will never forget the stories, laughter, and fun that we had together. You were always worried about me and my family, and always put everyone before yourself. I'll never forget how when you chucked, your beautiful eyes squinted as your shoulders jumped up and down. From now on, anytime I see Oil of Olay, Hershey's chocolate, Peppermint Patty's, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Bingo, Covergirl makeup, hair brushes, or beaded jewelry, I will think of you and only you. You have made me a better person. My greeting to you, "Hello Beautiful", will be yours forever... You were beautiful inside and out. I love you so much, and you will be missed more than you ever know. I never met anyone in all my life who could remember every detail of their life. You told me stories about Ricky when he was a baby, named our dog "Buttons", supported my passion of singing, and shared your life long recipes with me. Thank you so much for everything that you have given me. I thought I was the world's greatest chef when you told me that I made the best mashed potatoes you ever had... You said "how did you make these sooo good?" I thought I was the best singer in the world, when you listened to my first demo CD. I thought I was the smartest woman when you told me you were proud of me for all of my hard work in college. I thought I was the most beautiful bride when you held mine and Ricky’s wedding picture in your hands and starred at it, so happy. But now, I know that I was the luckiest person to of had you in my life. I love you so much, and with each day that passes, I will be thinking of you. Love, Christina

My Grandmother,(Nanny), was such a caring loving woman. She was always there for me my whole life when I needed her even though she needed me more. She would never ask for anything or expect it. She was full of nothing but love and caring for everyone. She would always worry about everyone but herself. Nanny, you were the best grandmother, mother and friend anyone could ask for to all that came into your life. You gave me so much joy during my life. Your words of wisdom, thoughts and advice will be with me forever. Your loving heart will live on though all of us that you have touched. Go now ,guided by God, to Pappaw and other loved ones that passed over before you. Be at peace and happiness knowing we will all have your love to guide us forever. I love you Nanny
