    "Nanny," you had so much love and kindness inside you, it was easy to see why the Lord gave you 103 grandchildren.  We all know you had enough love for 103 more; but you were ready to go home and be with the Lord and Pampo.  Now you can watch from above and see your family continue to grow.  Cheer for us all. We love you Nanny ... Kay and Ida. (Granddaughters).
