You were always a constant source of love in my life, you never judged my faults and always encouraged my endeavors. I love you so much, and will miss our late night talks, while you ate ice cream and I drank wine. And these past few months of our illness you have checked on us almost daily. I'm happy to now you're with Uncle Warren because I know how much you missed him. I already miss you so much, but I'll see you again one day, save me a place.

Love always,

Nana, thanks for everything you and Grandpa did for me over the years. You both were incredibly generous, and I was truly blessed to have a wonderful set of grandparents. Like Grandpa, you will be forever missed and loved.
