Remembering Nana ~

Lucile Marie 'Nana' Eliot Farris
b. 29 Oct 1909 ~ Stockton, California
d. 10 May 2002 ~ Santa Clara, California 

Lucile Marie 'Nana' Eliot Farris, was born on this day in 1909, in Stockton, California. Nana, as us neighborhood kids called her, was like a grandmother to all of us. She was loving and kind and we were all so blessed for being in her life. Nana would have been 110 today!

Happy Heavenly Birthday, Nana, we love and miss you so much.

Wordless (Almost) Wednesday ~ Windows on the World Matchbox

New York World Trade Center, Windows on the World Matchbox. 
c. 1999 or earlier 

My mom (1933-2010) traveled frequently to New York for business and I recall her sharing with me that she had lunch at the World Trade Center. Mom used to collect matchbooks where ever she traveled to . . .  after she passed, I was going thru the basket of matchbooks, I found this very special treasure that I now have safely stored in an archival box.

We will forever remember that day and all those who lost their lives to the 9-11 terrorist attack and lives that have since been lost from the effects of that attack . . . never forget.
