You were my whole world growing up. I spent everyday of my whole childhood with you. I was at your house everyday. I remember helping you take care of grandma, the root beer floats you made me, playing house under your desk, bologna and cheese sandwiches with miracle whip, peanut butter, jelly and butter sandwiches, you collecting Dr. Seuss books for me, watching Lawrence Welk with you, swimming in the pool at your apartment complex, and walking to King Cole market to get groceries. When you were still able to drive, we drove around in your white Dodge. You'd take me to the park, to the grocery store with you, shopping, everywhere. I always wanted to go everywhere with you!
I could go on and on Nana. I have so many good memories with you! I even have dreams sometimes of all the things we uses to do. Always in my dreams is your apartment on Broadway. I can still close my eyes and see the whole apartment and where everything was. I can still remember the smell of your bathroom. It always smelled like the pink Dove soap. I still use that soap to this day. Every now and then, I can still smell your perfume and I know that you're with me, watching over me.
Happy birthday Nana! I love you and I miss you so much!!!
