Nanny, I was so blessed to have met you . You were the sweetest person I have met, you treated me like I was one of your grandkids and I will never forget that and I was so happy when I was told that you always asked about me and How I was doing. You will truly be missed by everyone that had the pleasure of meeting you.

Nanny- your strength, resilience and love for us will never be forgotten. The memories I will always cherish from you helping me tie my shoes to giving me advice on buying my first home. Heaven received a woman that was an angel walking amongst us. ❤️

Loved Mrs Iris. She never met a stranger and welcomed all who came to her home. She treated them like family. Iris was the sweetest lady. She also was a wonderful cook! One thing i do remember is her Southern home cooked meals. She will be missed. Heaven sure received an Angel. <3
