"My sweet and so very loving Nana - I miss you with all of my heart and words cannot even begin to describe the loss of you. The world is a bit less brighter now without you. The thought of your laughter makes me smile. Your kindness is a constant reminder that good does exist. I know you are with Papa, dancing the night away! Until we meet again, I love you so very much.
