Nancy was a shining light to all who were blessed to have known her. She was delightful, kind, caring and fun. My best friend in high school and always. I will miss her beyond words, but will cherish the wonderful memories we shared through the years as friends-more like sisters. My love and prayers are with Jim and their wonderful family whom she loved dearly. She will be greatly missed, but she will always be with each of you (her family) and also with those of us who loved her too. Barbara Barner
