    My Nanny to me was an on angel on earth. She endured so much in her time here. She was the strongest, sweetest woman I've ever known. Miles between us made it hard to see her but while see could she called every weekend to say say hello, Blessed my bones, and said she she loved me infinity. I was always home whenever my Nanny was around. She will be lovingly missed and remembered. Angie
