    I miss you and will always miss you. There will not be a day where I do not think of you. Even now you are not physically here with me I will still love you. Every day a new memory of you comes to me. Some of these are the time when you took me to get my nails done and all those times we went shopping. I really enjoyed the shopping for Dad’s furniture. You bought me a new painting set. All my memories of you are so special. I will miss you Nanna. You are the best Nanna in the world. RIP Nanna. Lady bug, lady bug, lady bug Lou.
