Good-bye NANA.

Sadie Alice Hill Hutchins

October 2, 1913 - October 29, 2008

Here's to you, Nana.

Always 'mugging' with your grandkids

Loved to hold all those new babies

Loved the spotlight

My top three about Nana:

She was always threatening the 'jewish knife' when she found out someone was pregnant

the Robin Hood in her: her tendency to 'borrow' items just to give them away

learning from her notes to me, how to put X's and O's on cards and letters and knowing what they meant
I'll miss you, Nana.

We'll all miss you.

I feel bad, I havent heard anything about Nana in a long time. Ive been in my own little world for too long! She will be missed, she was a funny lady. I think the one thing Ill remember about her was her name for Stevie..."Molly"...oh goodness she was a crack up:)

Jane said...

((hugs Jenny)) I will be thinking of you and your family.

I am sure she will be greatly missed.

What a beautiful tribute, thank you Jenny!! I'm very sad, she was always so loving, in her own way. I miss her hugs and all her jokes...haha she was soo funny. A spitfire. I will miss her.

I am sorry. That picture of her in the pool looks like your dad! I am guessing that she was your dad's mom??!!

Jenny--what a beautiful tribute to Nana. Loved all the pictures you chose as well. She had a hard time leaving this earth. I told her that she had fought long and hard for 95 years and that she didn't have to do it anymore, and that we all loved her. I know she heard me. I'm glad I was there for her these past two days getting ready to meet her heavenly Father. Kim also spent a lot of time with her to comfort her as well. She is now at peace, no more pain or sorrow--Just a happy life with her two children who went before her. Love, Aunt Shirley
