My husband and I visited Mrs. Epps on the average of twice a week while she was at Amara Nursing Home. The minute we would walk her room she would say "please sit awhile and we can talk". Such a delightful person, so pleasant. Will will miss her. May God Keep her in his presence. Sincerely Bob and Karen McPhee

Big Nanny is a very special lady! Back in the day, I so enjoyed sitting under her carport and we talked for hours. Always hard to leave because I enjoyed her so much. Love you Big Nanny!!!
