She left a legacy to returned to my baby

Its sad to think that Christmas eve at her place will be no more. Its sad to think that I will no longer receive her beautiful letters in the mail. Its sad to think that i will no longer be able to pick up the phone to hear her voice.

Mary Elizabeth Arnold passed away at the age of 97 on February 16 2010.

She was my Nana. there was no other name for her. Her great grandchildren called her by that name also. She was my Best friend. we could talk for hours and parting was so hard to do. her love for every one especially her family was great. All she ever wanted was for her loved ones to be happy. For being of such a wise age, she was still so keen and independent. A woman who was determined to not have to depend on others for help the last 3 months of her life was spent in a hospital in bed. I think she was able to hold out from needing help for a long time.

Nana will be missed greatly. But i know that with a blink of an eye We will be able to see her again. It is wonderful to know that she is now united with my PopPop and with the child that we lost last August. I know that when it is my turn to take the next step in Gods eternal plan I will be greeted by all three.

My Nana i will remember how it was and with my baby i will think of what could have been.
