Nanny held a special spot in our lives. I am thankful she was willing to care for our children and be part of our lives through the good times and bad.
Sending love to all of her family during this difficult time.

Hi Brenda. I hope this will reach you. My brother Guy told me he saw that your Mom has died. I am so sorry for you and you family. Lena was one of my favorite Aunts. She seemed a little strict to me but she always had a smile for me and asked how I was doing. You and I were good friends for many summers and so I was at your house a lot. I also have a quilt she made and a small Christmas hanging. She was a wonderful quilter!!! It is so hard at first, after you lose your mom. I still think of mine every day, 17 years later. Please email me and we can keep in touch. Jane (Spavold) Tims
