    To Tammy and the rest of the family, I’m so sorry to hear of Nana’s passing. She was always such a sweet lady with such a warm smile. I recently had a new grandson and she always had such sweet compliments when I post his pictures on Facebook. As a matter of fact, the last one was just last week. Time is so short and tomorrow isn’t promised. I’m thankful to have known her. I will keep you all in my prayers. May He wrap you in his comforting arms now and in the days to come.
