Memories Timeline


  1. My condolence to all family members. My Nanny will be greatly missed. I was truly blessed having her a part of my life. She was filled with laughter and a silent strenght. She showed us how to love one another and to remember that part of loving is forgiveness. Our Father in heaven called her home to have peace and no more pain. She will always and forever be part of my life. With deepest symthany and Love, Tammy

  3. My old maw maw, that's what we called her. She helped to raise me. She was maybe the most peaceful person to whom I'm blood related. She was the first person to advocate for me in most situations. She kept everyone in check. She loved to laugh. She loved to tell stories. She always reminded us, her great grandchildren, that while we were taking French classes that she was punished as a child for speaking French. She was an amazing person, and I'm so grateful that she had a big hand in raising me. I'll always miss her, her smirk, her hugs. And of course her cooking.
