Nanny- I admired you from the moment we met. You were the image of what a real woman was supposed to be about. Strong, nurturing, smart, loyal and so many other great qualities you had is what made you such a miraculous woman. I will always be honored that I had the chance to know you for the time that I did, and  I am convinced that I will never come across another woman in the world like you. 

I feel blessed that you accepted me and that I had the opportunity to get to know you and be in your presence when I was. There was never a dull moment with you... and every visit we have ever had was a gift from God himself. 

You were a firecracker, you were a role model, you were brutally honest and well respected. You were full of knowledge and good values and never compromised your morals or beliefs for any reason. You went above and beyond for the people you cares about and loved and it showed. You were so independent and had the best and most matter of fact advice for any situation. You had the most unique personality. And no matter what, your approach on life and anything in it was so impressive. You could handle anything... and never let lifes setbacks set you back. You did what you had to do always. I never once heard you make an excuse for anything. You just grabbed life and rode it. Good bad and ugly times... you always faced it head on and you just never gave up on a thing you were passionate about or involved in. 

I could go on and on and on about what a wonderful woman you were and what an impact you made on so much and so many in your lifetime. There are so many things that I could say about you. I could talk about family pictures, home made meals, owls, your sharp memory , your lack of selfishness, your morale.... there is nothing I can think of about you that wasnt amazing and beautiful. I even cherish the time you asked me if I was trying to catch bottomfeeders (when I asked why you told me that) cause I looked like hell warmed over and to please go do something with myself. And I was like... omg I must and went home to get pretty so I could co e back and show you that I corrected that error. When I came in you looked at me and said "Much better honey" and I felt as though I won a marathon. The point I am trying to make is that I am usually not the type to give a crap about anyone's opinion.... but yours mattered to me a great deal. 

I didnt make it to your service and I am sorry. Amongst other things, I wasnt sure if I would have been any comfort to anyone by being there and to be honest, I would rather trick myself into believing that your at your sisters in Reno for a visit. And you know me.... anything could have set me off and put me into a mean streak. Besides, I love your family so much. To see them heartbroken and at such a great loss would have been hard to do because there is no way that I could have or can fix or change this. We have lost one of the most beautiful woman to have ever existed on this planet. You were and always will be what I would consider to be the closest to the perfect woman as it gets. You will be greatly missed.  I am so blessed beyond words to have known you and I will never forget you. I love you. 

To Toni, Cody, Devin and family-  I apologize for not making attendance to the service. My heart was there and my condolences and sympathy were and are there as well. I love you all. And I am sorry for your loss. Not sure what I ca. do but if you can think of anything, dont hesitate to ask. I pray for healing of your broken hearts and for everybody to be okay and able to live. You guys had the bestest Nana in the whole world and she wanted nothing but the best for all of you. Love-Amanda Mae
