We got a call early this morning that Nana had passed away. Nana is Andrew’s grandmother, (Tracy’s mom). Nana had been fighting cancer for the last several months and the last couple were a very hard struggle. She was an amazingly strong woman. We had the privilege of seeing her and Tracy in December of last year in South Africa. I only met Nana after David and I were engaged or married. I cannot remember now. She always made the effort to make me feel welcome into the family.
Andrew would go every summer to Nana’s house for a few weeks to visit. He would have the best time. Once Matthew and Grace were born, she treated them as she treated Andrew. She would send them cards on every holiday and then presents at Christmas. My kids know when Nana sent a card there is always a prize inside! Even the team members at J-Life know that “Nana cards” are the best!
She will always be remembered as our Nana. She was a special lady to us all. She will be missed. We love you Nana.
