Nan, We miss you everyday. It has only been 5 days and already feels like a lifetime without you. We cherish all of the memories you have left us with and the joy that you have brought to our lives. We are at peace knowing that you're flying high with the angels. You were always our angel here on earth and we could only pray that you are now our guardian angel in Heaven. We love and miss you greatly and your memories will always make us smile again. We love you deeply and We will see you again one sweet day. Rest high on that mountain nanny for your work here on earth is done. We love you sweet lady, friend, mother, and grandmother. Times are hard for the ones you left behind, but we will stick together. I promised you that, and we will always be a family. This circle will not be broken.... Hugs and loves until we see you again. Love Always and Forever, Tasha and Douglas
