I Can’t Tell You Nana
How Many Tears We’ve Cried
Since The Day We Were Told
Our Precious Nana Had Died
It Seems Impossible
Although We Know It’s True
Because Everything We See
Reminds Us of You
We still Hear Your Laughter
See The Smile On Your Face
We Would Have Lost Our Sanity
If Not For God’s Saving Grace
We Have To Close This Letter Now
But This Is Not Good-bye
For You Will Forever Walk Softly
In Our Hearts And In Our Minds

Love, Michael, Johnathan, Christopher, AJ, and Lorna
