"Nana was an incredible woman. I feel blessed that I had the opportunity to get to know her over the past few years.  She was a giver of LOVE and an amazing listener.  Each time we would talk she was so eager to learn what was going on in our lives.  While everything moves so fast in life, I felt as if time just slowed down to a peaceful pace when spending time with her.  She always would respond to our stories by saying, "Oh that's WONDERFUL!".  That along with her beautiful smile will be my lasting impression.  God bless..."
