    NANNY was my rock. She was the best person ive even known, she was my grandmother, at times a mother, father but she was also my best friend. She was pure hearted, beautiful (inside and out) I will NEVER FORGET HER, EVER. So many laughs with her, I loved making her laugh. I loved talking with her, and during last few weeks I wasn’t able to speak with her. And that will forever burn until my last day. I had 1 very important thing to tell her that now i cannot. The void in my heart that has always been, has now grown to double the size. If i could go to Wesagusett with her for just 1 more beach day like we used too, and I was able to slow time down, I would be the happiest man alive, until that day ends.
    I Love you Nanny, youll never truly know how much you meant to me.
