Oh Mrs Hannigan, you will be missed. You and I had so many laughs from coming to your house when I was in grade school with Nancy to studying with you in class at Elizabeth Seton College in our Paralegal classes. I will always remember the Bellevue Ave House and your Pot Roast. So glad I was able to visit with you upstate a few years ago and even though I know you will be a guardian angle up in heaven watching over all your Hannigan's, just know, I will always be here for Nancy.
