I was blessed to have my Nana for 35 years. She was an amazing woman who grew up during the depression, married a GI at the start of WWII, and saw her husband off to as many wars as they had children, the last one of which she also sent her oldest son to. She raised her children all over the world, but retired to the community where she grew up. She lived the last 30 years of her life surrounded by family and lifelong friends.
Yesterday her physical presence left us, but her love will remain with us forever.
