    Nanny was always a giver, volunteering her time to veteran's affairs and always making sure her family never went without. She is the one who gave me my stubbornness, my pride, and my way of looking at situations in life to make me laugh. I am so grateful for all the times I had with her, and I am thankful she is now at peace. I love you Nanny.
