Just please somebody make sure that you make Donnie a plate. 

There will be no “in lieu of flowers”, as Nan loved flowers; send ‘em all. If you are inclined to make a donation in her name, please do so in her honor to the Alzheimer’s Association to help fight the disease that started to take her from us, or to the Susan G Komen for the Cure for the disease that took her in the end. 

The family would like to take a moment to give a special thank you to Deborah Brooks and Michelle Brown of Hospice of Virginia, and the countless other caregivers that they have encountered on this journey. 

Thank you for making Nan’s last few years of life as light and full of joy as possible.
