My heart hurts for selfish reasons. I wish you were still here. But I know you are in a better place with your Lord the place you have been waiting to go for so long. I know you are smiling that beautiful smile of yours looking down on us. I will cherish so many amazing memories and moments with you . You and I use to be attracted to each other’s hip at one time and I will never forget all those crazy adventures we had. I love you Nanny and I am so proud to be one of your amazing grandchildren. Thank you for always loving me . 

[i carry your heart with me(i carry it in]
i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear;and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
                                                      i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you
here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart
i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)
