Oh nanny! Where do i begin? You were like a mother to me. I loved coming to spend the weekends with you! From mayonnaise sandwiches to fried apples! Your cooking was my ultimate favorite! Sunday dinners were what we all looked forward to every week! I love and miss you my "screaming" nanny!

What a lady, she was very special to a lot of us. I remember her making the Best yeast rolls and she and my Mama, Louise, made the beast fried pies..
We are very fortunate to have known and love her. What a reunion in Heaven. Love you Aunt Doris....
