In Loving Memory - Nannie

Hello friends!
With a heavy heart - my Nannie 101 yrs old passed away Tuesday Sept 30th just a bit afternoon!
I know you've celebrated with me her 100th and 101st Birthday. You know how much I loved her and shared with you through my previous posts. Oh my Nannie was still having every thing her way up till she passed. She was sooooooo strong. Hard right now for me to write this. I know she had an incredible, wonderful long life. BUT you see if I could have had her for another 20 years with her being in good health - I would....


This beautiful photo was taken by my Aunt. The sun was setting in the backyard yesterday at Nannie's house. The chair was right there and if you can see the tiny pine tree right next to it - Nannie planted it as a tiny tiny sprig from the mountains. She had picked it and brought it home with her.
IT's amazing how she got it to grow and she was an AMAZING woman!
With my love and appreciation - Annette

I'm so very sorry to hear of your beloved grandmother's death. It is very obvious the very special bond the two of you had.

It is never easy to lose anyone you love regardless of their age, and one is never prepared for the loss. May your wonderful memories and the love and prayers of your family and friends keep you strong.
