My Aunt Nancy was the most wonderful person. She always had welcoming arms, a welcoming home and a comforting hug whenever needed. I will miss her kind and generous heart. I will cry for the loss of her on Earth but rejoice in her no longer being in pain and that I know she’ll be an angel watching over so many of us.

Nancy was like a sister to me. We met in 1973, as we were a Navy family and Richard was Kerry’s cousin. Our kids spent lots of time together and we were close friends. I will miss her, we spent a lot of time traveling in the car and never ran out of conversation and laughs. She was a lovely lady who loved gardening, shopping, cooking and baking and kept a spotless well decorated home. She gave cancer a real battle with a great attitude of beating it and enjoying the time she had. She is in God’s hands now. Good bye Nancy.

I just absolutely adored this woman. Although I hadn't known her for long we had great laughs and enjoyed the pool together for many seasons. She will be missed xoxo
