Nancy was my dear, sweet cousin; our moms were sisters. She was like a big sister to me since she was about 6 months older. We spent many, many holidays (Thanksgiving and Christmas) together when we were young. At first, at my Grandparent's house and then after they were gone our family would go to her house on Thanksgiving and they would come to our house on Christmas; then we would do the opposite the next year. I have many happy memories of her, her mother and father, and her brother and sister. Nancy was witty, serious AND funny, thoughtful, kind and a joy to have in our lives. She was deeply loved and will be sorely missed. I have to admit that I am a bit jealous that she is now with our moms and our Auntie Donna, her father and our Grandma and Grandpa O'Rourke. She left us too soon. With Love, her cousin Jeri
