I was so sorry to hear of Nancy’s passing.  She has been a dear friend for over 35 years.  She was always there when I needed her.  We shared both laughs and tears, lately by phone calls and letters.  Rest In Peace my dear friend.  Wayne, Jaimie and her family are in my prayers.

Nancy was a wonderful neighbor and friend to our family. Generous, kind, and caring.  We will miss her, but we are thankful for the chance to have known her.  Blessings to Wayne and Jamie and the whole family.
