Thank you for life, purpose and love. There just never been a time without Nanny. She was a major part of making us all who we are. An inspiration, a guidance, a Stern taskmaster. Mostly a fount of love, tolerance and forgiveness. She taught us to play four handed pinocle--a game played by us still today. Whenever there was a question Nanny's rules ruled. Jonathan is devasted as is Bill whose heart goes out to this family but especially to Tim.

Dear Tim and Mary Sue,

I was so saddened today when I read the paper and saw that Nanny is now with Tom. Nanny was so much a part of our lives. Only she could get Jon to eat his vegetables. May God wrap His loving arms around you and the family at this most difficult time and give you comfort and peace.

Much Love,
