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.

My wedding day, November 7, 2009 - I was given away by my grandmother, a very special moment.

Thank you soo much! I really do have such wonderful memories of my Grandmother. That relationship was the most profound, loving and honest relationship I have ever known. I know your Gbabe will feel the same way about the two of you.
