I was gifted with the opportunity of participating in Nanna's funeral & burial services. I delivered the eulogy at First Baptist and then sang Amazing Grace at the cemetery afterward. It was such a treat to share with the congregation, what Nanna had taught me. She was truly an incredible woman.
Click here for a copy of my eulogy.
The entire week was one full of love and comfort as family & friends gathered to celebrate & mourn together. I believe Nanna would have been pleased.
After the funeral, the church provided lunch for the family. There we were able to get a few photos of the whole family.

This stained glass window is in the sanctuary of First Baptist Church, Fort Mill. Ziza Young Mills was my great-grandmother, my Nanna's mom. I doubt that I will ever be in that sanctuary again, so I wanted to make sure & get a photo of it.
This is my Nanna's living room- painted in a color called, "Peach Whisper"- which she pronounced, "Peach Whispa".
