I will never ever forget Nana. What a smart, funny and joyful woman! I'm so happy I was invited to attend her 80th birthday bash, and will never forget that awesome birthday bag (Black Velvet, Sinatra CD, smiley face birthday t shirt)! I can just imagine the joy she's experiencing now, and hoping she'll meet my Mom...they would have been two peas in a pod! Praying for peace and comfort for you all. What beautiful memories she has left you all! xoxox =^^=
