To Bob and children of Nancy. i am so sorry to hear about Nancy passing. She was such a special person to me growing up. Her dad and my dad were brothers and i know the sadines in love ones that pass. I have such wonderful memories of her. I remember watching her getting ready for cheerleading and going to ball games. I thought there was no one like her,,,so special. Like everything else, time passes and regrets are made that we didnt keep in touch. I pray that one day we will all meet in heaven. I just know she is talking with my mom & dad and other love ones that is in Jesus care. In the coming days I hope you will find peace and remember all the good memories. May God wrap his arms around you and your loved ones.
