    Rest easy Nanny. You were one of the funniest and strongest grandmas a grandson could ever have. My last visit I had with you along with my son Markus was very entertaining and enjoyable as always. We were in stitches the whole time. I like to think your confidence in speaking your mind is another great quality that will live on through all of your relatives. We were all very lucky to have you and will be missed a great deal.
    Love, Kevin Kreksconaitis
