The best nana ever.

While there are no words that can fix this loss, I could not think of a better way to celebrate the beautiful life my sweet Nana lived, and the impact she made on others. This is for you Nana.

My Nana was my rock, and the biggest role model I could’ve ever asked for. I cannot thank my Nana enough for taking me to church, and instilling Christ in me. I truly would not be where I am today without her guidance.

If you knew my Nana, you know she had a big heart for Jesus and loved her family more than anything. She was the most selfless lady I have ever known, and always made sure everyone was taken care of, and put others before herself.

She was so kind to everyone she met, and had so much joy from the Lord. Nana, you were a true light to so many people and you are beyond special. My Nana was not only a huge inspiration for me, but also to many others. I know she is face to face with Jesus right now, and is rejoicing and dancing with Him. She truly served the Lord in everything she did, and I am so proud of all she accomplished.

My Nana was everyone’s Nana, and welcomed my friends in like they were her own. She loved them unconditionally, and taught them how to love others. My Nana was truly a huge blessing to all who knew her.

We all keep wondering how someone so great be taken from us so soon and how God could need her more than us? It doesn’t seem real. It doesn’t seem fair. But, through this process I am trusting God, and clinging to His truth. He will provide in these hard times, and He will bring us so much comfort and peace in His time.

My Nana absolutely adored all of her siblings, kids, grandkids, and her great grandchild. Her and my Papa have been married 50 years, and they were best friends. They were always together, and loved each other dearly. Family was everything to her, and she loved spending time with all of us. Some of my favorite memories with my sweet Nana are when my siblings and I staying the night at her house every friday night, and playing tons of board games and color, traveling to Red River, New Mexico, our endless shopping trips, and getting to go to the zoo with her.

My Nana served as a Homeroom Mom, at Baby/Wedding showers, Cooked Falls Creek, Sunday School, after church Fellowship, and the list goes on and on. Sunday School Susan – loved her church and loved serving others. Including her Family, which she served like no other – She was Simply the Best! Best Mom, Nana, and wife anyone could ever ask for. She left a Legacy of Love and we will miss her everyday until we see her again.

If you were Blessed to know her, you know how big of a heart she had for others. She impacted SO many people’s life’s, and is truly such a huge role model to me as well as many others. I am so proud of her and all she accomplished, and I will strive to show my love for Christ just like she did. My Nana showed me how to love like Jesus, and always made sure I said my prayers and knew that God loves me.

My sister found a verse in my Nana’s bible the morning she went to Heaven. It is Colossians 3:12-17. “Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” — My Nana had this verse underlined and underneath it in her bible she had written “be thankful.”

This perfectly describes my Nana. My Nana was always super thankful for everything she had been blessed with, and was super proud of all of her family.

My Nana was the woman that touched everyone she met, and truly was a huge inspiration to all. She is the kind of person I want to grow up to be. She never failed to make someone smile, and she loved like no other. She had a huge heart for others.

My Nana would always pray for anyone in need, and if I needed encouragement I would always go to her. She always knew the right thing to say. She was my biggest supporter, and loved to watch me dance my heart out.

My Nana was the absolute best ever.

We will love you forever and always Nana. You’re forever in our hearts, and we will see you again someday. My guardian angel forever!

Always remember to “Love like Nana” !!
