I am so sorry for your loss, I knew your mom 50 years ago when we lived in Lowell, and even though she had her own girls she always had room for more. Our families spent a lot of time together until we moved to New Hampshire. Your mom was a beautiful soul, I only wish I knew her as an adult. Please know growing up I would think of your family trough the years, Breanda Jean and I were always together as kids. Our moms were both wonderful.

Nana, I will always love you and never forget you. I take solace in knowing you no longer have to suffer. In my heart I know right now you’re on a road trip to Chicago with Uncle Ken, Nana Dot, Bill and George so I know your safe and in good hands. Tell them all we love them and miss them. I can’t wait to share stories about you to Kaylee and Ryan when they get older. If either one of them grow up to be half the person you are then I know I did a good job. This is not a goodbye as I will see you in my dreams and memories until the day you open the door for me.

Rest easy Nana - later!

Your original Bad Boy!
