Dear Nana,
We really miss you,

And wish that you’d always be with us,
But since God wants you too,
I’ll keep your memories alive in me.
She was a mother, a nana, and a great nana

She loved us all in her own special ways.
To us, she was like a mom in so many ways, she was our Nana.
She wasn’t rich, but she was rich
with love and the stuff that mattered.
She was bold and beautiful,
She was Strong, loving, and kind,
Funny and stubborn.
She was homemade apple pie, and crocheted blankets,
Card games, dice, and dominos.
She had a love for elephants and collected them all.
She had a love for the birds and knew every kind.
She was homemade meals on the holidays,
She was dinner at noon on Sundays,
She was the glue to get us all together,
She loved unconditionally,
She was there always.
I thought time with her was never ending
That there's always another day,
She held my hand most of my life,
I held hers until I kissed her goodnight,
She's at peace with our God in Heaven,
Where the streets are paved with gold.
One day, we will be together again.
She is my Nana.-Sadie
