We are all going to miss the"Best Grandmother" any person could hope to have! Even though I am so so sad that she is gone, I feel so lucky to say she was my Grandmother. She was nothing less than the most loving and caring person anyone could ever know. It didnt matter what hard times or tough things in life you were going through, you always knew that Nunu was there for you and loved you more than humanly possible. When I was down on my luck and having a hard time with life, she took me in and gave me a warm loving place to stay when I had nowhere else to go. Yet somehow convinced me that I was there for her...Like I was doing her a favor, being there for her. Thats what Nunu was all about...give give give, but still manage to make you feel like you were doing something for her. Im going to miss you more than youll ever know Nunu. But, I know youll always be with me, making sure Im always loved and cared for.

My deepest condolences. Although I did not know Nunu, I know her daughter Yvonne, a wonderful, generous and loving person who will carry on Nunu's legacy.
My sympathy and prayers for the whole family.
