I am so very sorry for your great loss. Nan was truly the kindest person I have ever known. I miss her so much already, and I hope I can always hear the sound of her sweet, sweet voice in my heart. She was a very special person- how lucky you were to have her as your mama. She was loved by so many. May she rest in peace. I wish y'all love and peace as you heal your broken hearts.
With my deepest sympathy,

Nan was one of the first to make us feel welcome at Grace Baptist. What a sweet spirited lady, and proud mother and grandma. We are blessed to have known her and sad to lose her presence for now.

Nan helped make Lauren Place a much more interesting neighborhood. She always had something going on, mostly with food. She was a joy and a delight to be around.
I know where she is and will look forward to seeing her again.

Mrs Bridges was my second mom in Alexandria. She loved me and disciplined me just like my own. What began as a weekend at her house before leaving for a church trip turned into her taking care of me with MONO for a week. She will forever be Nurse Nan to me. She never batted an eye for having a sick guest when her children were away for the week. That example of unconditional love is something I've tried to emulate over and over. Jo Lynda I am sorry for our loss.

Nan was truly one of the bright lights here at Hadden Hall and I along with many others are going to miss her. She always made my day with her cookies and peanut brittle! Its the little things in life that bring such smiles to everyone, and she did just that, on a regular basis. Thank you for sharing you Mom with us.

It wasn’t as often as I would have liked, but I recall every time I got to be with Nan. She was six years younger than my Dad, her Uncle Ray, and I remember trying to get my math brain around that as a youngster! Her beautiful spirit, calming voice and cheerful demeanor is always in my heart. Love to Nan’s sweet, loving, attentive family. You all were her treasures.

Nan was a cousin that I only got to be with at rare reunions. But, I felt very close to Nan through our cousin Susan Cordill. Susan was very close to her and she would share her memories with me and what a wonderful person Nan was.
I, and my family, appreciated all the old family photos that Nan shared with us. Cousin Faye Wall McKee

I will always have very fond memories of Nan. Sweet cousin who had the sweetest kindest voice of all time. I remember her calling my Mom, Aunt Cappy and always checking up on the whole family. RIP Nan, you will be missed. Love Liz

Nan was the most wonderful person. I was always so proud to be her cousin and to look like her. I can just see her now in heaven with Gigi, Uncle Joe and Buddy. Finally they are all together again.

I loved her very much and will miss her!
