I am so thankful to have known Nan in this life. She was always a joy to see at FHNBC when I was there, and I was blessed by her influence in the music program and the church. One of my favorite memories of her was the night our choir was rehearsing "It's Shouting Time" and she started clapping from her pew. She cared so much for her family and friends. I pray for all of her family members as they continue this life without her, but also find joy in knowing we shall see her again! Praise God for eternal life!
