She had a heart filled with so much warmth and light that touched not just her loved ones but anyone she came into contact with. My nana is the strongest, most kind person I will ever know and I will continue to be inspired by you for the rest of my life. To my fellow Virgo, my friend but most of all my one and only nana.
