    Going on 3 years without her. She was my best friend. She taught me the things I know now, I would tell her everything and I would cry to her when I missed my mom. She understood me really well, she would take good care of me and Grady and my cousins. Its been hard with out her. I miss you nanny. I wish I couldve said goodbye or atleast been able to hold your hand for the last time. 🙁 </3
