Your Nanny…

… Your Nanny (grandma as you liked to call her!) loves you and misses you very much.

In a lot of ways you were like her little boy.


When you were 8 months old your dad and I started on staff at the STL org and we were literally gone almost all the time.  We were allowed to have a 2 hour dinner for “family time” (30 mins of which we spent driving) and we got 1 day off a week.  On our day off we had to do laundry, grocery shopping, cleaning and cooking for the week – so that day off was gone really fast – we actually had very little time left over.  You spent most of your time with Nanny when you were little.  I missed you a lot, but at least I could see you sleeping in your bed every night when I came home.


       You and your grandma were so close and you did so many things together!  Do you remember?





You’re a young man now, but in all honesty you’re still so very young at age 20.  I’m completely sure you’ll look back in 10-15 years and realize how young you really were.

Bless your heart, you feel completely grown up now – and in so many ways you are – however when you look back with the wisdom you’ll soon have, I wonder if you’ll be happy with these life-altering decisions you have made.

Jeremy, your precious Nanny is getting a lot older now.  She will soon be 71-years old.


How will you ever get these years back, Jeremy?

    I loved all your pictures. You and I have so many sad things in common: Both our sons have disconnected, both their names are Jeremy and both of them have loving moms and grandmas. I wish I had the magic cure to wake our boys and my daughter up and tomorrow morning they would be back in our arms.
    ML, Lori
