This past week has been incredibly difficult for me and my family, having to say goodbye to my Memom before we were ready to say goodbye. I can’t even put into words how much Memom meant to me. I always felt loved and special when I was around her; she was one of my favorite people! Some of my best memories are with her and I’m so grateful for all of the beautiful memories she left me. She always made us root beer floats when we had sleepovers or made us a bubble bath with bubbles that went up so high. We played hide and seek and she always helped me find the best hiding places or give me hints where others were hiding. We would talk on our car rides home after she would pick me up from practice, which usually meant a lot of laughing. Go shopping at “kissiana mall”, help us hunt Easter eggs, pick vegetables in the garden, bake cookies, play play-doh, help us draw, play cabbage patch kids and so many many things. When I got older and had my own children she became the best great-grandmother or “nanny” as my children call her. My girls absolutely adore their nanny and have so many of their own wonderful memories. I love you so much Memom and I always will, forever your Winsy.

I not only lost my mother I lost my best friend. This is the hardest thing I have ever had to do is to say goodbye. I have so many wonderful moments with my mom. She always was there for me anytime, I didn’t even have to ask. She was always doing for us and never worried about herself. She always put everyone first. She was such a loving grandmother to my children. She did so many things with them and they loved spending time with her. She left them with such great memories. Then she became a great-grandmother, it was like the best thing that could of happened to her. These children were blessed to have her in their life and will always have her in their heart. I will miss you Mom and Love You with all my heart. I will keep our moments close and memories forever. Till we meet again, Your Baby Girl.

I love my Nanny with all my heart. She’s my favorite person in this whole universe. To see her go breaks my heart, but I know she’s in a better place. When I was really little we would throw rotten apples off her and my Poppy’s apple tree. So many amazing memories, I can’t even put into words. From playing dress up to Shirley Temple and changing for every song (even if the dog had to dress up too), being pulled around in the wagon with her dog, Heidi, chasing us in the back, baking tons!, pinky promising, cooking breakfast in the mornings with “Taylor’s eggy” and “Nanny’s Noodles” for lunch. She always knew how I liked everything, my eggs with strawberry jelly and light toast, my noodles with butter and salt on them. Playing doctor in the bathroom and using a whole box of band-aids on one cabbage patch doll, and so much more from when I was little. As I got older our bond only grew. Even though we grew distant in miles our hearts were as close as ever. When she came up here to Maryland to visit us, she would always leave behind cute notes saying how much she had fun playing with me . She would also leave behind a shirt she packed in her suitcase. I would keep her all to myself, I was glued to her side. I didn’t need all of those letters or shirts to remind me of how much she loved me or that she was always there. She was my go to person to talk to. We would talk on the phone either every Wednesday or Thursday right after school. Them we would call on Sundays. She would always know it was me when she heard my voice. She would answer with “hello my beautiful gorgeous darling” and her scent was Moonlight Path from Bath and Body Works. And you can’t forget our trips to Rehoboth for Thrasher’s french fries or to the mall for our smoothies. The memories go on and on and they will be forever remembered and treasured in my heart. I love you Nanny. You may not have known this but you are my role model. I miss you everyday and I always will I love you to the moon and back Nanny <3
