We are so saddened by "Nanners" passing. She was like a mother to me when Tanner was born. And after some of lifes trials and tribulations, she was a dear friend. I'm glad she was able to join in on our wedding day. It meant a lot, and I will never, ever forget that. And a message to "Nanners".....you will be missed and NEVER forgotten.
