    I will miss my nana so much. She was the best person to call and text to cheer me up. I loved the years I got to live with her and visit her. I will always cherish those memories. I am going to miss my biggest supporter. I love you Nana!

    I will miss all of our conversations and laughs. You were a great mother-in-law and friend to me and an awesome grandmother to my kids. I’m happy you are at peace and entertaining the angels in heaven, but I will miss you here on earth.
