I was going through cards for Mother's Day, my birthday and Christmas from 1990's today and found Christmas cards with notes from Punky. One had her cranberry recipe in it as Rocky told her that I wanted it (1993). She made it for Thanksgiving in 1975 when I was in Aztec, NM waiting for Melanie to be born - was so good!! I'm thankful I saved them...

Dear Nanny, I just want to tell you that I love and miss you! What an amazing stong person you are. I will never forget the wedding and the dance you did to "Hey Ya" from Outkast. That was cool. You are a wonderful mother, and raised two good men. I thank God for the chance to have you for the time that I did! You have given me a different outlook on life. I love you Nanny...
