J'cris ce avec les larmes coulent sur mon visage. Le destin est cruel et ne me laissera pas partager ces derniers moments avec vous. Les mots "Tu me manques" ne sont pas assez pour ce que je ressens maintenant. Je voudrais tre l pour vous, rire avec vous, remèmorer avec vous, simplement jouir votre compagnie. Vous avez vcu une vie extraordinaire!! Venant de très peu et endurant d'innombrables souffrances, devenir une arrière-grand-mère aux enfants fous! Je vais manquer votre histoire sur France. Sur votre exprience de la guerre. Votre conte de fes d'une histoire d'amour avec arrière-grand-père Peter. Votre douceur mlanger avec la fougue hystrique. Votre la gentillesse cependant rencontr gale rigueur. Votre accent et votre rire attention is avec un sourire charmant et chaleureux. J'espère continuer votre hritage fièrement et ne pas dcevoir. Tu me manques terriblement et Je t'aime pour toujours!! My dearest grandmother... I write this with tears flowing down my face. Fate is cruel to not allow me to share these last moments with you. The words " I miss you" aren't enough for what I am feeling right now. I would like to there for you, laugh with you, reminisce with you, simply enjoy your company. You have lived an extraordinary life! Coming from very little and enduring countless sufferings, to becoming a great grandmother to crazy kids. Im going to miss your stories of France, about your experiences of the war. Your fairy tale of a love story with great grandpa Peter. Your sweetness mixed with hysterical fiestiness. Your kindness, however net with equal strictness. Your accent, and your caring laugh with warm and charming smile. I hope to continue your heritage/legacy proudly and not to disappoint. I miss you terribly and I love you forever!! This ls from her Granddaughter Danielle My sweetest Nanny, No one truly understands deaths finality till one is gone. Most people don't realize the impactfulness of someone's life until it ends. No-one loved us more fiercely or cared more deeply than her. Being her grandchild was easy, it didn't take much to make her happy. The simple pleasures of a visit, a card or a new photo of her great grandchildren bought her pure joy. The life she led was simple, but not easy. She had more than her share of hardships and suffering. Some challenges knocked her down but she always got back up. Because of this she always listened and did not judge. Perhaps there were things she didn't approve of but it never stood in the way of her loving us. We all have beautiful memories of her. One we all have in common as her grandchildren is the infamous box that would arrive a few weeks before Christmas. It was perfectly packaged, not a wrinkle to be found. It was adorned in the most beautiful hand writing, and there was no mistaking who sent this package. As a child there was nothing better than receiving this Christmas box. The box seemed endless, packed with tins of homemade cookies with perfectly curled ribbons. Her knitting always accompanied the goodies. We'd find a new hat, sweater or dress all arriving perfectly assembled. The amount of LOVE this box contained is immeasurable. However, there was one infamous item that came every year. Nanny and Poppy's fruitcake, do people really eat this? Sad thing is I never tried it and would probably enjoy it these days. I enjoyed cooking with her when I was younger, she'd teach me the words in French. As an adult I loved cooking for her. My love of garlic started here. While she was living upstate she'd go to a local garlic farm. I honestly can't even imagine how much she purchased. She'd fill huge glass jars of crushed garlic for myself and Catherine. It's a cooking staple for us, not sure what your meal needs, chances are it's more garlic! My Nanny gave me a sense of who I am and who I should be striving to become. I am beyond thankful that she has been an intricate part of my life for 47 years. She is a shining example of unconditional love. I'm grateful for the years she shared with Paul, Evan and Jeff. We are all changed for the better because of her. We will all die, however the goal is to live and create a life that brings you solace, comfort and gratification.
