I will miss her sunny smile and her laughter. She was a beautiful person inside and out. Even though you sold your house in the addition I was still able to keep in touch when you would come into the store. Prayed to you Max and your family.

We will miss Nancy's warm smile and friendly bantering. A dear, dear friend. Always thoughtful, always the kind of person you wish was your neighbor.

I know I am only one of many who will miss the sweet smile and kind heart of Nancy, who was such a kind and giving Grandmother to Devon and such a blessing as a Mother-in-law. I was thankful to have her in my life and know she will be truly missed by many. She was always so happy to greet us with hugs when we met and laughter when we chatted over long distance calls. I am sure a hundred years would not have been enough time on this earth with her. And wish I could give her just one more long tight hug. You were loved! Max, Kim, Mitch, and her amazing grandchildren are in my heart, thoughts and prayers through this difficult loss. Love always, your "other daughter", Kelly
