    One of the hardest things in this life is to miss someone you love. Nanner treated me as one of her own and I am forever grateful. Darkened are our hearts this day but may I say that......It is only Love that allows light to permeate into the darkness in our hearts.....Love is the thread that bonds all of humanity as one.  Love Unites. Love heals. Love gently guides us through the suffering of the dark season's of life.  Love teaches us that every difficulty endured in this life has a higher purpose....it is the very thing that elevates us closer to living unconditionally." Thank You Nanner as you are the definition of a "Beautiful Soul"
