My heart is broken for you all. She was my mom in law at one time and she's always been like a mom to me. She was there for me at one of the lowest times of my life and I'll forever be grateful. She loved everyone deeply, especially her grandbabies and great grandbabies. They were some of her greatest blessings! She loved when they came to visit, when she got to go visit them, and she loved seeing their pictures posted to social media. She was "Nannie Poo" to me and there will never be another like her. I know she was saved and will be with God! It's not goodbye for me, I know I will see her again one day. Thinking of and praying for all of you now and in the coming days. May God wrap his arms around "Pop Paw" and you all and may the memories you have of her, help to bring you some comfort. Love you all.
