Remembering Nanny

This is hard to write today. I haven't been very good at keeping up with my blog, but I have good intentions. I really want to get it caught up and post photos and stories in a timely manner once again. But until that actually happens (if ever) I've been running it 2-3 months behind always playing catch up. Which usually isn't a big deal, until you get to a date like Sept 28th that you just really don't want to spend too much time talking about, especially when you sit down at the computer to do the next post not realizing that was the post waiting for me. But, I don't want to skip over it, how could I? We love Nanny and the way to keep that love is to talk about her and remember her.

We got a call that Nanny was in Wisconsin visiting family with Jackie and Tom and that she fell in a Casino. They took her to the hospital but there wasn't much that could be done. In a way it was fitting. Nanny was out there LIVING a full life. She was with family and friends and doing what she loved doing the most. Being social and playing slots. She got to say her goodbyes and then on Sept 28th, she peacefully fell asleep. We miss her so much. She was with me in spirit this Thanksgiving, helping me make the gravy. That was her specialty you know. She was always thinking of others and always, always the center of attention. She was never afraid to show her feelings and especially her love. She had a flair for drama and always had a good laugh in her. She will be always missed but never forgotten. We love you.
