Oh nanny, how I will miss you so much. But I know you are finally home. Watching over all of us. My heart breaks for selfish reasons. But knowing you will never be in pain again and to know you are with god , I’m at peace knowing one day I’ll see you again. Thank you for always being one of my biggest supporters and for loving me unconditionally. You helped mold me into the women I am today. And for that I will forever be grateful. Rest In Peace nanny ❤️ Love you
