Hi everybody, So sad to hear about your loss. Nana was and will always remain as one of the kindest souls in my life. I loved spending time with her and all of you in fond memories we've made on the cape. I didn't have a grandmother of my own until Emmy and Kerry adopted me into the family, and then I got the best grandmother there ever was. Thank you for letting me in! Lots of love to you in this difficult time. -Nadia
