A message from the grandchildren:
A grandmother is a very special woman indeed. The woman who makes sure you're fed when you come to visit is the same woman who makes sure you have a darn good laugh before you leave. Is our grandmother any different than anyone else’s? We certainly hope not! All we know as grandchildren is the warmth and the smile that was our grandmother. Nina as she was called by some and Nana as she was called by others was the most amazing and electrifying woman to ever grace our presence. Nina/Nana there will always be a special place for you in our hearts. We will forever think of you when we see a poppy bloom. We love you!
