A beloved great grandmother who is well known among her over 219,000 followers for her words of wisdom on social media has gone viral for her sage advice regarding the afterlife.

Nanny Faye, 98, recently took to her Tik Tok account, nannyfayeandme, with her wise words regarding death and what could possibly wait for us on the other side after a follower shared her concerns about dying.

“I’m scared of dying and can’t help it. Can you ask her if she is and how to help with that? She’s sweet!” one of her followers asked.

Nanny Faye was quick to offer comfort, telling them that “everything’s going to be lovely” in the afterlife.

“Noooo! Why should I be scared? Honey, what’s there to be scared of…This [life] is just a little interim time. It’s a blip,” she said.

“It really is not going to amount to a hill of beans hardly… Less than 100 years up to eternity doesn’t even cut it.

“There is going to be perfection. Everything’s going to be lovely.

“No sickness, no sorrow, no…people out of work, no trouble in any direction. There’s not going to be any of that stuff that worries the tar out of us here.”
