You are so loved Nanny. I’m reading through these lovely memories and you touched so many lives.
You were a second mother to me.
There will be no one like you. They broke the mold.
The sadness is overwhelming and there is an emptiness no one can fill. But you.
I love you.

For the past 6yrs that I have been given the honor of caring for this woman she has touched my heart. She made me dance when I was down, made me smile when all I wanted to was frown. My days will not be the same, but I know she is dancing for joy in heaven. My condolences and prayers to the family.

I use to take care of this sweet woman at the pierpont center. She loved when I brought my kids in to visit! She will be greatly missed. My condolences to her family. I will never forget all the talks we had and the talks her and I had with her son. May you rest in paradise.
