Amy, Nathan and Leon, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I will always remember her as Nannie Brightwell myself even though she was on your side of the family. I remember her being kind to me when I was a kid and I was with Leon and my aunt, Faith and I rode with them out to her house. Always loved how beautiful it was out there! I pray that God will comfort you all in this time. God bless you all! Many many prayers for you!
