Heaven gained the most amazing woman. “NANNY”. She was tough as nails and sweet as a saint. She had the best wild stories, as if she had lived many life times. She raised two amazing men/ fathers and grand children. She bootlegged liquor through the prohibition and lived life to the fullest. Her hands never knew a day without hard work. She would wake up at five a.m. to make us waffles from scratch. She fed the humming birds sugar water every day so they would visit the windows at her garden. She was the family stone on my fathers side and I’m proud to be named after my grand mother Elizabeth King. Any and all prayer to lift my family up now is appreciated and she is much celebrated. ...We visited in her last days and she is so proud of us and the adults we have become, the kids, grand and great grands. Family please drop any photos you come up in there on the thread and share as we celebrate the life of love she brought to us. She was sharp as a tack until her last day and let it be known they don’t make em like her any more!..... Heart broken. Grateful she will now Rest In Peace 🙏🏻 Party w Jesus Nanny. We love you. We know you will watch over us.Read more
