Heaven received a beautiful angel today

Today my beautiful mother in law passed away. She was an amazing, beautiful, strong woman. I would not be where I am today without her. She helped me with my career and was a great resource for advice on life. She understood my oldest daughter better that I sometimes could.
My girls loved her beyond words, especially Kylie, Nana's first grandchild. They had a special bond all their own. Kylie is named after her Nana and grandma, and I don't think we could have done it any better. Kylie is in so many ways 'just like Nana'.

I am sad that she will not be around longer to see all 3 grow up. However I know she is watching them from heaven and is the BEST Guardian Angel they could ever have! I am thankful that our youngest daughter, Katie, got to 'meet' her Nana.
I personally believe Nana was waiting for that meeting. I know Greg and I will do our very best to tell each of the girls what a wonderful person Nana was.

She was so full of knowledge. If I could be half the person she was I will be a happy woman. It would have been 17 years in April that I have known her. It seemed like every time I had a question about anything she had some knowledge about it or knew where I could get more information.

I am so blessed to have been able to be loved by her. She never treated me as a 'daughter-in-law' she treated me as a DAUGHTER. I have always said I had the best Mother-In-Law a girl could ask for. Sure we had our share of disagreements over the years, but in the end we always laughed. She had an amazing smile that could light up a dark room. She always tried to look for the best in everyone.

Mama Dixie I love you and miss you. I can't wait to see you again... :)
