Dave, Jenny and Lindsay,
We are so saddened to hear of Nancy's passing. She was such a special person. She always had kind words for us when we spoke.
We have wonderful memories of the times at Dave's barn watching the girls ride, the potluck suppers we had, the Halloween parties, and all the fun we had laughing and joking around.
We will treasure our memories and look forward to the day when we will see Nancy again

I will never forget the day Nancy called to schedule a chiropractic appointment for Jenny’s horse Scooter. She knew what she wanted for the horse and made her expectations very well known. I can remember thinking ,”Oh boy, what have I gotten myself into!” But, for as strong and demanding as Nancy was, she also was the most generous and caring woman and I am so honored that I was able to call her friend. I will never forget the hundreds of miles spent with her and the rest of the family traveling all over in search of a new horse for Jenny. She will be missed dearly. My deepest condolences to Dave, Jenny, Lindsay, and the rest of Nancy’s family. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
