My precious nanny went home to be with the Lord and my Pappy on Sunday, Oct. 20th. She was 85 years old and the best grandmother a girl could have. I was very close to her and it's still so hard to believe she's really gone. I am happy that she is no longer suffering and is perfect again. These past few years, she's had a hard time and she fell and broke her hip right before Maggie was born and since then she has never really walked again. She was bound to a wheelchair and it just made life hard for her. So, I'm sure she ran into the arms of Jesus. After being in and out of the hospital several times, she was in an assisted living and my mom would take care of her. She was tired, and ready to go home so I'm thankful that God didn't let her suffer anymore. But, I'm extremely sad that she will not be here with us to play cards (she loved Phase 10 and Dominos), to eat dinner with us, to share in the happy times, to see the girls grow up. But, I'm so thankful I had her for all these years and that she did get to meet my sweet girls. Burkleigh was a nanny's girl and she loved her nanny. She was always ask us "where's Nanny" As I was going back through pictures, I'm so glad we have these to hold on to and I will make sure the girls know how special this lady was and what a big part of my life she was. She will always hold a special place in my heart. We love you so much Nan! Thanks for all the wonderful memories. You were the best!
