I remember the first time I met Nanaw, Eric warned me "my grandma is loud." I met her and she was loud she reminded me of my grandparents. I fell in love with her. I will miss her being loud. Remembering Nanaw she was loud, she loved to talk and she was always happy. She never met a person she did not like. I have been thinking over the past few days, she taught us all to love God and family. She did not preach it, but she lived it. Many, many thoughts are in my head, to many to name. She was always there to talk to if you were down the street or a 1,000 miles away. I will never forget the look of pride when she saw the girls for the first time. I will be baking this week for Thanksgiving and I will be thinking of her, she loved to come over and get pies and cookies. And we will be thinking of her as we hang the stockings she made us. This is not a good bye, but until we meet again. You can not make another Nanaw. Love you always!
