My Nanny was a strong, wise and nurturing woman. Recently, my daughter Allegra, 3, started to ask me questions about my Nanny and I wish I had preserved her wisedom, character and also, her lessons learned through her stories to pass down to not only my daughter, but my great great grandchildren," said Kristin Pisarcik.
