Tanner and I will miss you so much. You are part of our best memories -- playing board games at the beach, or at your sister Frances' house. Talking and caring and sharing. We will carry you in our hearts. We send our love and condolences to the other family members you have left for this little while. Much love to all of you.

A wonderful and inspiring woman. I called her Aunt Flossie even though technically she was not. I was fortunate to be with her at many family celebrations over the years. She surely will not be forgotten. With love, Celita

Nana, you will be missed, but knowing you are in a better place and in heaven with the rest of the family. You are just missing in person but not in my heart. I will always love you!
