Nana in the last 54 years there has not been a day that we haven’t called each other to make sure the other is okay. My heart is empty without you, my nights are long and the days now seem lifeless. I want to say thank you for raising me to be a kind and caring woman, thanks for providing me a sense of direction, thanks for showing me what unconditional love is, thanks for taking care of me when I was sick
Thanks for being the love of my life!

It’s sad to see a person go that was so giving and lovable as you. You always knew the right things to say when I was down and out. This day came to soon and can’t believe it’s real. Well now your in a better place looking down on us each and everyday. We will all miss you!
The loss of a love one is never easy hope everyone can find comfort in all the wonderful memories that was shared. my deepest sympathy to the family..love always
Those we love remain with us for love itself lives on, and cherished memories never fade because a loved one’s gone. Those we love can never be more than a thought apart, for as long as there is memory, they’ll live on in the heart. My prayers are with all of you!
