Extending our love and prayers for comfort to dear Nancy;s family. If ever one had an immediate friend who would love you unconditionally from the first meeting on, it was Nancy. We are honored and blessed to have known her and been recipients of that warm, loving friendship. She will be missed by all who knew her, and most of all by her precious family who cared for her so lovingly and expertly. God bless and comfort you all, knowing that her smiles are bigger than ever now - at home with her Lord.

God saw " Nancy " was getting tired
And a cure was not to be.
So He put His arms around
" Nancy" and whispered come to me. A golden heart stopped beating, Hard working hands now rest. God broke your hearts to prove to you He only take the best.

Dear Madeline and Linda and Families;
We are very sorry to hear of Miss Nancy's death. Also sorry that we were not able to make it to the memorial service, as we were out of town. Don will always love you all...both Miss Nancy and John, your dear brother Johnny (whom Don speaks of often!) and you girls just meant so much to him. Although you didn't see him often, he loves you all very much...and so do I. John and Nancy were good friends to us when we needed friends and guidance and I thank them for that. I pray that they are together and at peace. We pray for the comfort of you and your families also. With Love, Don and Jacki and Boys

Hey Madeline;
I just realized that there was the availability to write a private email. I entered a "public" signing of the guestbook, but there is so much more I would love to say to you...I don't have any contact info of how to reach you. Don had stopped by several times since his last visit with Miss Nancy, and no one was home. I understand now that she had been living with you for a while. If you have any time, we would love to see you, or speak to you. Again, I apologize for not attending the memorial service...we truly hated missing it. Please know that you are in our hearts and in our prayers. If we can do anything to help you, please let us know. I have recently lost both of my parents Madeline, and I do understand how you feel. Just wanted you to know that we care about you and your family. Blessings,
Jacki :)
