Condolence & Memory Journal

One of my most fondest memory of Nana, was when my cousins and I would have our family Christmas parties at her tiny apartment in Jersey. However, those were the happiest times ever! We ate off of colorful snack trays, played in a small room and sat on couches warped in plastic. Nana never missed one birthday, holiday or special occasion. We had a simple childhood that kept us grounded. Nana taught us the meaning of family and love.

God bless you my beautiful angel
