Tom left a message on November 18, 2011:
Goodbye Mom. You are now free of your tired, worn body. It was holding you back after a long life of dedicated love and service to your husband, children and your whole family. As you left us gently, and dignified on that November evening, we held your hands and said goodbye for that final time. I know that you now see "the big picture" and are elated to experience your immortal Soul in the company of God and our family who have gone before. I am comforted to imagine you now, 20 years old again, with Dad, gliding on Schroon Lake in a canoe at McAvey House in the Adirondacks. Strolling the fields of wildflowers, feeling the warm sun on your face, lauging and loving again with Nana, Dady-Mac, Kenneth, Mahala and Cynthia.Goodbye, Mom. You've touched many lives in your many years with us. We will not forget your soft kindness, deep love and generous Spirit.Love,Your son, Tom

When I was a girl, and Nanny and Gramps lived on Mahan Ave in the Bronx, we would go and visit them there--walking the few blocks from 1610 Mahan ave. where the rest of the family lived. I was small and loved the brick stoop on front of the house always drenched in sunlight. It was always lovely to see Nanny come to the door with her sweet voice and welcome. As soon as we entered the bottom floor apartment, she would literally wisk me off to the sunny kitchen, have me sit at the table or on my favorite step stool, and say, "Wait right here, doll, I'm going to make you a malted shake. You're way too skinny."And that she did, in a green,1950's, Hamilton Beach malted milkshake maker that was always there on the counter. Then she would hand it to me and make sure I drank it.Sometimes when I'm lonely or lost I buy Ovaltine and close my eyes to be back there with her.

Your family will miss her greatly but will always remember the wonderful times you spent together. Your family supported her with love and strength and one day you will all reunite for eternity.
