I am still in touch with many of our classmates from the class of 1957. Nancy was one of the sweetest girls I knew in school and we shared many laughs. So happy to hear she had a wonderful life and so many people loved and cared about her.

Putting on paper the impact the loss of Nancy and Dean has had on me is beyond comprehension. They will remain with me for the rest of my days. I loved them both so very much. The tears seem to come from an unexpected place when thoughts of them come to mind. God has the best of the best now - Sam, Dean and
Nancy. Blessings and strength to the entire family and all who were lucky to know them.

I became friends with Dean and Nancy through their affiliation with Newton Mfg. Co. They have been to the office a number of times and we traveled together for various incentive trips and meetings. Everyone at our office thought so highly of them both and we loved their kind, caring and fun personalities. We feel fortunate to have known them both all these years. Our thoughts and prayers and with your family. Toni Peska, Newton Mfg. Co., Newton, Iowa
