Nana, we will miss.you so much! It's so hard to not be able to talk to you. I miss when you used to tell me how to.make your sauce or funny stories about the family! You will always be missed and loved. Haylee and Chris miss you so much too! But I'm happy you're with Grandpa because I know he's been lost without you and you also have your family in heaven as well. We will meet again someday, but until then play some bingo up there and know that we love you so much!
Love: Jamie, Chris, and Haylee
