I’m missing you, Nanny. You were always there for me. A wonderful listener and gave the most compassionate advice. You were dedicated to your career for so long. Thank you for all of the beautiful memories and the wonderful laughs! I feel at peace in knowing you will watch over my family and I to continue to listen, nudge with compassionate advice and encourage hard work ethic. I love you!
