My sincere sympathy to the family during their time of grief and loss. Nancy was a feisty force of nature. We never met in person but we shared a fun relationship on Facebook. We had made a lunch date but it was at a time she first began to decline so she cancelled. She adored her children and grandchildren. You were the light of her life. Nancy was an angel when she walked among us and now she's an angel watching over all who loved her. God's blessings to you all.

Dear Jan, Casey, Pat and family ... she was my best bud from high school until the end. We had lunch at Winsteads everytime I was home... the last was in September. She was hurting but still wanted to get together. We would message back and forth while she was working her night shift at the hospital. My heart is aching and broken. She will always be a very important person in my life. Prayers and comfort for you all.
