I was lucky to be part of this family for over a decade. Nanny was one of the sweetest, honest, most God fearing person one could ever meet. She was an awesome grandmother to my boys and literally a Nanny to everyone. I can't mention the countless times her smiles, hugs, and advice comforted me in the face of some of life's difficulties. She is loved by so many because she selflessly gave and loved so many. Rest in peace Nanny and to the family I hope light of the Lord comforts you in this time of loss.
