Nanny was a faithful Christian who wanted her family to know Jesus and spent time daily in devotion to her bible. She loved reading, playing the piano, listening to music (from Andy Williams to Jimmy Buffett), drinking her coffee, and enjoying an occasional honey bun donut holes or black walnut sundae. She so enjoyed visiting the Gulf Coast in the Summer or Arkansas in the Fall and anytime on the Tensas River, camping, sewing, cooking for her family, wearing her endless collection of matching colored flip flops, and accessorizing with her bangle bracelets. More than anything, she adored her grandchildren. She treasured a photo collage of her four grandchildren titled “There’s No Place Like Home, Except Nanny and Pappy’s” that clearly shows the love for and from those grandkids (Heather Feather, Drewfus Rufus, Lucas McCain, and Maggie Moo).

We love you Mama/Nanny. Enjoy being with Jesus and Buck. We’ll see you again someday soon.
