So sorry to hear about Ms. Nancy. When I think about her there are just to many memories to share. As soon as one is ending another one pops up in my memory. Loved this woman more than anything. Jean and Marilyn, our parents were friends for years and there is a lot of memories there. I am very sorry to hear that she has passed.wished I could come home now, but I cannot. I will be praying for the family. Prayers for everyone.
