"I am sadden to hear of the passing of a dear friend. I pray for your strength in Christ. When you feel you can't go one, ask your heavenly father for the desire to go one one day at a time. Remember Nanette is your guardian ANGEL now and she's watching over you. She will be missed dearly. Remember her smile, the words of encouragement and how she would want us to go one. Remember she's gone to get heaven ready to us. I will keep you before GOD to help you one day at a time.

Even though you are grieving today, may you always remember to be grateful for the time you had together. Share your memories with each other and her life will continue through you. Even though we don't understand losing a loved one so young, we believe that God's timing is perfect. Feel His peace with the knowledge that she is enjoying the beauty of heaven.

Nan was the youngest of "the cousins". Her mom and my mom are sisters. I remember her tagging along trying to "hang" with the big dogs. We only got to see each other during the summer when we were little as she lived in Northern California. When we became "grown-ups", we got to reconnect over Thanksgiving holidays when we all would get together to party and attend the ASU Homecoming activities. While I'm so relieved she's no longer in terrible pain, I am sad she's no longer with us and her boys won't have their mom to watch them grow up. Rest in peace, Cousin.
