Teresa and Kent, I am so sorry to hear of Nanna's passing. The memories you have of her will remain in your hearts forever. She was blessed with a great and long life; and shared her good and fun nature with her family and friends. God has called one of his true angels home. Each of you are in my thoughts and prayers.

We are both very saddened by the loss of Nanna but also comforted to know that she lived her life surrounded by a true core of loved family and friends. Heaven’s door most certainly rejoiced at her arrival.

With much Love,

Chip and Jody
