Nancy and Gary and families
Your mom was so amazing-when we lived in Preston she was so wonderful&kind to me, and was always fussing over our newborn daughter Dawn. She was so well liked and respected in the area,
and she always was there in a pinch for me, or just to offer great baby advice!! She was especially proud of both of you, and the hard work you were putting forth to begin your careers.

She will be so missed, but she is in God's loving arms and it is a wonderful place to be.
Keeping you in our thoughts and prayers.

Dear Nancy,

I have very fond memories of your Mom. She had a good sense of humour and was always full of energy. Her love of animals was something I will always remember. She was a wonderful lady! Take Care.
