My deepest condolences to the family. Nancy was a loving and thoughtful person. The many memories left behind will be the things that make us smile as the days and years pass by. May God be with you and comfort you during this difficult time. And even when we can’t put our feelings into words, God will hear our prayers and comfort us, Romans 8:26; Psalms 94:19. Loving thoughts and prayers go out to you. Nancy will be dearly missed.
