Our Most Lovely Nancy

My lovely little sister Nancy and her granddaughter 'Nancy'. She was my partner in the  R&N Cafe I wrote about a couple of days ago. I just wanted to share this sweet picture, she was a wonderful grandmother to her five grandchildren. We shared our stories, there is enough to write a book about our growing up together where we made our own fun. The only entertainment was a picture show and a radio.

This picture was of Nancy and her little granddaughter (nancy) down at the river with us eight years ago. I am missing her terribly. This is at about the same time she started getting dementia and had trouble remembering things. What a terrible thing to happen to someone so precious. All of the things that meant so much to her were striped away. We spent a lot of time of the phone talking about our childhood and things that she did remember, and up until my birthday last November when she couldn’t remember me. The last thing she said that night was, “I love you”.
