This special poem was written by Rusty Quirk, her godchild as a special tribute to her:

Heaven's Angel

Goodbye dear sweet angel

I'll miss you more than you know

I know you'll be with me

no matter which way I go

You've meant so much to me

and you'll forever mean more

than just my sweet, loving Nanny

a woman I truly adore

I'll miss all the ways

that you've shown me you care

I'll miss all those times

you've always been there

I'll remember you always

from when I was a boy

You were the best Nanny ever

You gave me more than just joy

You gave me lessons of life

you gave me smiles with no end

you gave me life long memories

of my very first best friend

You taught me piano

you taught me to cook

you taught me to love

with no second look

You will always be special

for the rest of my days

Nanny you will be missed

and in so many ways

I knew you're an angel

all love and no lack

but  now God's called you home

He wanted Heaven's Angel back

Goodbye Nanny

I Love You so Much, Rusty Quirk
