My heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Nancy Stanford-Manchego. It had been several years since I last spoke to Nancy and my Uncle Pete. I remember she was a very nice lady and my uncle was blessed to have her in his life. I was informed only yesterday of their passing. I will always have them in my thoughts and prayers.
