    Nanny,

    I’m broken. You were my second mother and will forever keep a huge piece of my heart. I’m heart broken, yet grateful that God blessed me with you as a grandmother and my children as a great grandmother. I’m also grateful I was able to spend time with you before this day came and was able to tell you everything in person. I’ll always love you and tell Papa we love and miss him as well. We will all be together again one day and it’ll be glorious. You will forever be my #1 and I love yo so much.

    Love,
    Joe

    Nanny,
    This is one of the hardest things I have ever faced in my life, but I know you are much happier in heaven with Papa. For the past 31 years, you both have always been there for me regardless of what it was. I’m going to miss the phone calls where you answer, and I just say “Hello Beautiful.” I’m going to miss how you looked at my at the dinner table, and say how much I look dad. You were the most sincere, loving, and graceful person I have ever known in my life. As I sit here typing this from across the world, I know the both of you are looking down from the heavens. God received his best angels heaven could ever ask for. I will forever miss and love you, but I know you are home now. Please give Papa a hug, and look over us until we meet again. I love you nanny.
    Love Always,
    Your Grandson Justin
