My Nonie

Today we laid to rest my grandmother, Nonie. It was a very emotional day for so many. I could say so much about my grandmother, but then I would have to write a book. I will say that I have wonderful memories. I spent every Friday night with her as a child watching, The Love Boat, Fantasy Island, Dallas and Falcon Crest. Those were the days. We played games, she and my grandfather loved playing games with me, teaching me how to play black jack and gin rummy to name a few. She also taught me things like manners, and she tried to teach me the Southern ways of life, like drinking coffee...well that didn't work out as she had planned. These are just a few fun memories I will keep of her, but there are so many more, that I will in time scrapbook and journal to share with my children. May God Bless her and take care of her in Heaven. May she watch down over my family and keep us all safe until we meet her again! Love you Nonie!
