I am so incredibly sad to learn of Nancy's passing. Nancy was such an incredible, beautiful and wonderful woman!!! She was so caring and loving with a contagious laugh and fantastic sense of humor. She always thought of others' first and went the extra mile to ensure that her family was taken care of. Nancy, may you rest in heavenly peace and may the memories you left behind comfort everyone that loves you. I also pray that the Good Lord gives strength to her family during this incredibly difficult time. Nancy, you will be missed.
