Nannette Moss Grantham
January 12, 2021
I have wonderful memories of going to Reelfoot lake with Nanette and family, and going to Duke’s drive in with Nanette and her mother to get a BBQ, and spending many a night at Nanette’s house and waking up to a BIG breakfast cooked by her sweet mom.
We have been friends since first grade and I will miss her dearly!!
