To the loving family of Nana. Although I never knew her, I have heard about her from my dear friend, Gillian. What a joyous, loving Nana. Thank you for sharing all of the pictures and the best was the one with the tiara. Go Nana!! Your smile is so loving and just reaches out to my heart. Heaven will be so blessed with you there. I told my dad to look for you. Give him a hug for me. Rest in peace dear Nana. Love, Hugs and Prayers.
