I hadn't saw Ms. Poole in a very long time and I just showed up out of the blue one night over at her apartment, The Cove. I was upset and crying when she opened the door and didn't even think she would know who I was. I asked her if she knew who I was and she said why yes. I asked her if I could stay the night that I had no where to go and she took me in and was hugging and kissing me. She got out some covers and made me a bed on the couch. As I sat there and we talked the TV was covered with a towel and the lights was off. There was just a faint glow in the living room. I guess she realized that I was looking at the TV and she said her eye sight was bad and the glare hurt her eyes. I told her it was ok and we talked some more before we both decided it was time to go to bed. Bless her heart when it came morning she was up and wanting to make me some breakfast but I told her I better be going and we hugged and I told her, THANK YOU for allowing me to stay. I've spent many a days at her home when I was little but this was the first time I had ever spent the night since I had grown up. I just want to tell the family they had a WONDERFUL Mama and I was BLESSED to have been a small part of her life. R.I.H. SWEET LADY!!! MAY GOD GIVE THE FAMILY PEACE AND COMFORT DURING THE LOSS OF SUCH A BEAUTIFUL WOMAN!!! UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN!!! MUCH LOVE AND HUGGS

I was somewhat raised by Nanny Poole as a child in Acworth. Me and lil Lonnie would go to Nannys house on the weekends and she always told us to " STAY OUT OF THE BACK ROOM BEFORE GOING ONTO THE BACK ENCLOSED PORCH ! " DON'T TOUCH NOTHING!! " and what would me and Lonnie do ? We would automatically go in there and play and much to know that was Earls room and she got upset with us but I DON'T THINK THIS LADY COULD GET TOO UPSET WITH US .SHE WAS PURE LOVE and it also showed on weekends when she would feed me and Lonnie and there was sooooo much leftovers i would go back through the day and eat because NOONE COULD COOK BETTER THAN NANNY POOLE !! MUCH LOVE AND GOD GOT A BEAUTIFUL NEW ANGEL WHEN HE GOT NANNY POOLE !!!
