"Adventure is worthwhile in itself."
          -Amelia Earhart

     Every now and again the world sees a true adventurer.  My grandmother was absolutely one of those special few.  Sometimes it took a little while to get going, inspiring Nanny's cry of "Off we go, like a herd of turtles!"  But other times the adventures were speedy-- like when she and her neighbor/ partner-in-crime were burning rubber in a 1974 Thunderbird convertible.  Nanny didn't stress over the small things, her motto in life was "Just roll it!" Her riotous sense of humor and infectious laugh endeared her to all those who knew her.
She will be very dearly missed.


  1. Oh no! I'm so sorry. Your grandmother was a very sweet woman. I wish I could hug you right now. Such a sad few months for you all. Please know your family is in my prayers.

  2. Thank you so much Denise, that means a lot. I'm always amazed at the outpouring of support from friends and family at times like this. ...Still, I could do without any more "times like this" for a while. I hope you and your family are doing well!
