Nancy was a beautiful human being. I am heartbroken to learn that she is gone. Her smile and comforting presence helped shape me from childhood into the person I am now. I have her loved ones in mind and I will be wishing all the best for them.


Nancy was the kindest, sweetest and most generous person who truly adored her friends and family and would do anything for them. She lit up the room with her cheery personality and always knew how to make me smile. It was a pleasure to know her, work with her and call her my friend and I am completely devastated to hear of her passing. She will be sorely missed. Memory Eternal!


Dear Nancy! I am still trying to accept the fact that you are no longer here. Although I miss your presence and friendship so very much, I understand God's need to take you into his house. I am so very thankful to have been graced to know you. I will never forget you as long as I shall live. God has a plan, and I have faith. Someday, we shall all be where you are now. When that time comes, I want to say hello to you again. Perhaps, we can have our lunch's together again like before. Although, I doubt they have any Boston Markets up there! I will see you again soon. I miss you so very muc…
