    Nannie is the sweetest person I have ever known and I always looked forward to the visits with her. She always treated me as a member of her family, as you all do.

    you (and your family) are in our thoughts & prayers at this very difficult time. Know that the Lord is very present indeed with all of you. He will keep you in His loving arms & comfort you like no other …
    Carolyn, our mother, Louise, loved you dearly … I pray that when I sing tomorrow, I may be used as a vessel of the Lord to help usher your beloved mother home to Glory. Remember, that ‘absent in the flesh means present with the Lord’… Much Love, Melodee, Michael & Noah Kyle (peanut)
