Picture of Nana

Do you ever see a picture and memories start to flood back.  This is how I remember my Nana.  I posted this piccture of her in my mom's blog today, want to see what she writes when she see's it.  I stayed at my Mema's most weekend, but some weekends I would stay with my Nana.  I wish I could have known her as a man, there's so many questions I would ask her.  I love to hear stories about her.  I know she was truly happy before she died.  She had found love late in life, and married Stacey, he was a good man, and brought much joy to her life.  She was a very independent woman who could do anything that a man could do just about or better.  I miss her tonight.

She is certainly attractive. I could write a story using just what I see in her face and eyes.
Great photo. Nominated you for an award, by the way.
Hugs,
Barb

That's great you had such a wonderful Nana!  I never got to be close to my grandparents.  I guess having 3 moms and 3 dads make up for that.  (I have lots of stepparents.)

My Nana passed away when I was very young, but I do have some good memories ( and some really funny ones, too ! ) of spending time with her.  Tina http://journals.aol.com/onemoretina/Ridealongwithme

And she fished :o) She really does sound like such an incrediable woman. I think it's wonderful that you carry on her spirit with thoughts, writings and photos. I admire you for caring that much.
