Happy Birthday "Nannie" ~ Gone but never forgotten
Today is a bittersweet day, it is what would have been my grandmother Etta F. Barr's 77th birthday. I was raised by my grandmother, she was my biggest fan, my closest friend, we spent almost every friday together until her passing. She was a special person, she loved people and she did everything she could for myself and my children. She was waiting on my son, her first great-grandson to be born in August of this year. Sadly, my "Nannie" passed away on July 5th of this year. I miss her dearly; I cannot sum up her impact on my life in a few short words, honestly, there aren't enough- I will simply say, "Thank you" and I am trying my best to make you proud.
