I have received an overwhelmingly large number of calls, emails, texts, facebook messages, etc. from precious people who have been praying for my sweet Nana over the past several weeks. My family has felt all of your prayers. Nana passed away very peacefully this morning and is now rejoicing in heaven with my Dada, who passed away a little over 4 years ago.
Nana was one of those people who I thought would live to be 120 years old. She was lively, happy, stylish, and LOVED everything about her life. A month ago (even a week ago), I never in a million years would've guessed that I was about to attend her funeral. She was 84 years old, but had the mind and body of someone who was about 40. Just a month ago she was shopping, driving, laughing, going to lunch, going to church, etc.
I think I'm still experiencing a very surreal, numb stage--not really believing that she really is gone.
Nana was a part of everything in my life and words can not express how much I
will already miss her. There was such a perfect place in heaven for this sweet angel when she got there this morning.
Nana's life will be celebrated at visitation on Tuesday from 9:30-11; and the funeral will be immediately after. Both will take place at First Baptist Church here in Starkville.
I would love for you to say a prayer for my family that day.
Also, if you were fortunate enough to have met this wonderful woman, I want to encourage you to click here and share a memory. Each comment will be valued, but I know it's nearly impossible to truly find out how many lives were touched by Nana.
Thank you God, for my Nana and the amazing life she lived.
