I miss my big sister Tiddy very much. My consolation is that she is so happy with all of our family in Heaven and that someday we’ll be together like we were when I was a little girl–only perfectly this time because we’ll have the presence of Our Divine Family too.

It has been only a few weeks since my nanny went to God. Although I miss her physical presence, I have her spirit with me every minute of my day. Since the days of her passing, I have been blessed to continue our relationship through prayer. I feel her love with me every day. I hope all of you who knew my nanny on earth, continue to cherish her presence and love as it shines down upon us from above. xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo

Thanks to everyone who visited the funeral home Thursday night. It was a beautiful tribute to the wonderful woman that my nanny, aka Phyllis, was. She would have enjoyed the companionship and love that flowed so freely tonight. Peace be with you.

Nanny, it’s been 17 years since you got your wings. I still carry you with me everywhere I go. I know you are watching over all of us, guiding us as we navigate this world. Happy birthday (eve) to the best Nanny ever! I love you so much. P.S Brownie says hi.
