    Nana (Betty) was the kindest woman I ever met. She loved us her family so very much and filled each our lives with so much joy. She made every moment we shared with her special. She was patient and she was selfless. She was always there for us all, in whatever way she was able to. Her love and her legacy will forever stay with me.
