Nana always made us feel like we were part of the family, but that was the case for everyone she met. While we will miss her greatly we all know how much she loved Jesus and I'm sure she's getting a reception as one of God's most blessed warriors along with a set of golden wings. Love to you all.

My aunt Ester (Zizi) was very special to me. She was my second mother and my best friend. For many years, we talked almost everyday on my lunch hour until she got sick. She was a teacher and inspiration for so many years. Needless to say, my lunch hours are very lonely without her. She spoke to my spirit after she passed away several times and told me the same thing each time, "It is wonderful up here, so don't worry about me." I know she is talking about heaven. That is where she is and where she belongs. I will remember her words when we were saying goodbye either on the phone or in person. She always said, "I love you, my love." And now I say to her, "I miss you and I love you, my love."
