I think Janet speaks for us all!
Every time I thought about making an announcement to show my appreciation to Aunt Pat and Uncle Tom, the moment got away from me with trying to catch up with all the family and friends who attended the gala.
Thank you, Aunt Pat and Uncle Tom.
Love from your niece, Janet Moriarty

More Nanny sayings!
A Cecilia Rose by any other name...
A couple of years ago, when I was expecting my Celia, I told someone that I was naming my baby after Gram...
"Ahhh, you are naming her Cecilia Rose!" I heard.
What? And that is how I heard the story for the first time...See Gram was originally named Cecilia Rose... She was baptised with that name, attended school, got married... all without realizing the mistake.
You see, her birth was recorded incorrectly... instead of being registered as Cecilia Rose... Niagara County had recorded her as Celia Rose.
There was never a problem...
Until she went to work for Harrisons...
They decided that she had to go by her "legal" name, Celia... and she has been Celia ever since.
Of course, I guess it figures that she had multiple names.. after all, we call her Grandma, Gram, Nanny, Nana and Nana B!
