My heart breaks and rejoices at the same time at Nannie Flora's home going. I am sad her presence has left this earth but I know she is rejoicing with her Lord and all those who met her at the gates of heaven! I remember staying with Nannie when I was young and I enjoyed it so much! I miss her hugs and seeing her smile when I ran up to meet her! She was a precious woman and I make sure to be on my best behavior even more now that I know she is watching over me once again!❤
