    My heart goes out to everyone touched by Nanny, near and far. Such a barrage of memories: her patience and willingness to always play with me, badminton, croquet, houses of cards and treating me to candy from the corner store and Ritz crackers with Cheez Whiz. She was always taking care of everyone, making sure we were fed (just a couple more potatoes) and knew we were loved meanwhile her meals got cold. Her laughs and taps on your leg when you'd tease her. Going on the bus to Christmas shop with her and making sure I got some popcorn shrimp after. Her insistence on taking me to find a good place to live when I was going away to school. The cute way she'd blame Poppa for her clumsy bruises. The way she could laugh at herself when she was silly. The special way I felt when she called me Our Mel. Her forgiveness when life got in the way. There's a lot of you in me and I love you and I'm going to miss you Nanny.
