My grandmother was so amazing. She loved having her family around & would cook big feast that brought everyone together. She had a very unique sense of humor that has probably rubbed off on every family member we have. She was such a strong woman that went through a lifetime without a want for anything but her family. I love you so very much Nanny and I already miss you. I am so sorry we didnt get to have another nail session before you passed. But know you will always be with me & I will always be your toot toot.

I grew up with Joy and her mom always made me feel special. She was like my second mom. Had so much fun fishing and just hanging out with her. I will miss you. Joy I’m sorry I can’t be there for you. Know I am thinking about you.
