My fondest memory of Nanny was with her, Tammy and me, we stayed up all night talking about life, death and our spiritually. We laughed, we cried and I felt nothing but unconditional love from her. I will miss her and be forever grateful for the family she left behind because they are all awesome people. God bless her and her people.
