In Memorial

My Nana, who had been living with esophageal cancer for a little over a year passed away this morning. She was at home, where she wanted to be, and it was quiet and peaceful.

She was a very tough lady and I'm proud to have been named after her. She was up and about until late last week.

My uncle has been living with her since my Papa passed away and has been her primary caretaker the last few years for which we are all very grateful.

We should all be lucky enough to have a Nana like yours. Big hugs to you.

So sorry to hear it. I never had the pleasure of meeting her, but it sounds like your nana was an amazing, strong woman you were lucky to know.

Oh, honey, I'm so sorry. Sounds like she was awesome. Did she play bridge? My mom passed about a month ago and is always on the lookout for a bridge game. Maybe they'll hook up. Sending you a hug. Okay, two. {{}}

I'm sorry. One of my gramas is still alive, but she's a lot more wandering than she's ever been. *sigh*
