“Nanny the Great fought very hard, so many times. She cared for people, loved people, has an amazing family that she made. We love her very much. Nanny the Great lived an amazing life. We will miss Nanny the Great, she gave us love, happiness, fun and so much support. We are all so very lucky to have known such an amazing lady and to have so many memories to remember her. Now she gets to be with her husband, parents, siblings and her dog Telly. Thank you Nanny the Great”.
