"Those we love don't go away.
They walk beside us every day.
Unseen, unheard, but always near.
So loved, so missed, so very dear!"
Oh Nana, you will be dearly missed. Thank you for all the wonderful memories, and YES, the potholders made with love!
We will always remember your feisty personality and sense of humor, and are so thankful to have been one of the lucky one's who's lives you have touched.
