Nancy was a neighbor of ours for 55 years. Our kids grew up together, played together, and went to school together. I will always remember the delicious cookies she made and delivered to her surrounding neighbors and many other friends and family at Christmas time. I have dearly missed her since she left Greentown and gaze at her house every day and remember good memories. Amy, you took good care of your Mother and you are to be truly blessed. I am sure God welcomed her to heaven saying "Good job, faithful servant"
