My prayers go out to the family and loved ones of Nancy. I want to express the sorrow that I feel at the loss of a dear friend and high school classmate. I spent many hours of super good times with Nancy back in the day. She was a good friend, lots of good memories there. I will miss you Nancy. God bless your soul, may you rest in peace.

Prayers for your family. She will be forever missed. Thankful that she is no longer hurting and is now singing and dancing in heaven with God and other family members and friends. She sure earned her wings. A very bright light.

I just want you to know how much I loved and enjoyed Nan! I miss her so much. My husband and I would visit with her at her home and we always loved talking to her. We would run into her at Costco even, and would talk at least 30-45 minutes. To think of her makes me smile. I’m so sorry I wasn’t able to visit with her much in the latter part of her illness. The last time we talked she wasn’t up to company and I totally understood. Sending my love and sympathy to the entire family.
