Dear Uncle Bobby, Tim, Brenda and family,

I treasure the trips "across country" when I was a little girl. Your home was always filled with love, warmth and sweet handmade crafts. I always felt so welcomed! I loved the time when my parents, my children and I all went back East and visited your "country shop". It inspired me to get "crafty". I copied some of Aunt Nancy's ideas...she was so talented!

My thoughts and prayers are with you all. May the Lord provide you with comfort and peace.

With Love and God Bless,
Marie-Theraes and family

My Sister Nancy:
I remember my Sister as a kind wounderfull lady, we had a lot of fun growing up together and doing a lot of things over the year, I remember all the cats and dogs and especially Misty, she was so kind to all of them. The trips to Florida and all the wonderful things she did for me and the family. I remember her working at the Darling Shop in Massillon, Ohio where she met Bob and they became one together, always together and always helping someone out. Even thought I didn't see her as often as I wanted to we always kept in touch, I will miss her greatly. Susan told me that the first timer she met Nancy she made her feel as one of the family and will always remember her loving way.

Dearest Uncle Bob, Tim and Brenda,
I am so deeply sorry to hear of Aunt Nancy's passing. I have such fond childhood memories of the wonderful times spent at your home, as I know my brothers and cousins also do. We had so much fun swimming and playing amongst the trees, and all the animals, I even remember a friendly racoon or two! Mom used to say people would drop off their unwanted pets off in the neighborhood because they would always find their way to your house as you never turned away a stray! But most of all I remember all the love that filled your beautiful home. I will never forget Aunt Nancy's kind, gentle, caring nature. May your wonderful memories comfort you during this very difficult time. Love and God Bless, Joy

Bob and Family - I'll never forget Nancy coming to my rescue one day at Navarre Elementary School. She walked in to the office and found me in tears because I had forgotten my lunch (before the days of caferteria food ... long time eh?) Five minutes later she handed me a bag with half a sandwich (which she probably took out of Tim or Brenda's lunch) and a pack of cupcakes from Nickles bakery next door. Those are the fond memories that I hope everyone can share with you. She was a beautiful, classy lady, and will not be forgotten
