She was the glue that held our family together. She was our Nana. I had posted on facebook Thursday about what a truly amazing woman she was, and one of my childhood friends responded, "Your family has quite a few amazing women, must be her influence." --- I loved that. I like to think that my strength, spine, and ability to laugh in times in trouble come from her. I also like to think that my (now) frugal nature is a legacy she has passed on.
Our weekend was spent with joy and sadness, laughter and tears as we remembered and celebrated the woman who made us all a family. She will be missed.
