"My Nan was the funniest, most quirky person I know. I loved that she always said exactly what was on her mind. She loved me and the rest of our family fiercely and will forever be in my heart!" – Amber Dickinson, 2013.
"Nan was the greatest grandma anyone could ask for. I will forever miss our talks, her advice and her warm hugs. She was always there when I needed her, ready with a witty comment to make me smile and some advice she knew I wouldn’t take because I had to find it out for myself. She loved all us kids unconditionally and will be missed always and forever." –Ashley Sullivan 2013
