Nana - I have always admired your strength and knowledge. You had such a presence around you that everyone always looked up to. I have so many fond memories of you and Gramp in Vermont, with my favorite being the night we played cards and you taking all my quarters telling me that I wouldn't be able to do laundry for the week. I thank you for teaching Josh so much and all your special talks with him. You helped him through tough times with those talks and for that I am forever grateful. He always looked up to you and Gramp. We know you are now reunited with your forever love, Gramp as well as Ann, George, and James. We will forever miss you!

I met the wonderful Veronica in 2019 and since then it has been nothing but pure love and joy. She never called me by my name, my name was always honey and I always called her mommy and she never said don’t call me that. She loved the African music I played in the house. I can write a whole book here about our time together. I will miss your beautiful smile, the warm hugs and laugh. I Love you and may the angels walk you home peacefully to your maker in heaven.
