Remembering Nanny

This past Sunday my grandmother lost her battle with lymphoma. We discovered in December that her cancer had returned and she was not going to attempt treatment for this second go round. She wanted one last spring at home and God blessed her with one of the most beautiful springs that I can remember! Several times over the last few months we have thought the end was getting close, but last Thursday was the real beginning of the end. I was lucky to get to see her during the last few days and talk with her and her last words to me were "I love you."
For 32 years I have called this woman my Nanny and she was my Nan. I was the first grandchild and Nanny was always there for me. Even though in recent years her personality has changed and she was no longer the same Nan, she always had a laugh for me. So as we celebrate Nanny's life in the coming days, I want to remember the woman who always supplied me with frozen pizza and gallons of ice cream, gave me hideous haircuts, warned me not to run too hard on the carpet because Poppy was watching, and taught me to love flowers. Her creek holds so many memories for my childhood friends and me. I spent so much time there that it was my second home. And even though I didn't visit as often as I should in the past years, she always greeted me liked no time had passed at all.
I love you, Nan! :) And cancer SUCKS!

    I am so sorry that we were not able to come to the visitation and funeral for Nanny. Had these two occasions been on any of the other two days in that week, we would have come, but Bethany had meetings both of those days already scheduled with an outside company. Joe said you sang at the funeral, and did a beautiful job. That is a difficult thing to do, and you know it would have pleased Nanny greatly! Good for you!
    I was very conscience of the time on both days, and my thoughts and prayers were with you as you celebrated Nanny's life and laid her to rest. She was a strong influence on her family, and I suspect the fun things you have brought to our family can, in many ways, be attributed to her. We will continue to enjoy those fun times, and even though she will no longer be with us physically, her spirit will still be celebrated as we carry on those traditions with you. She will definately be missed by all of us!
