My heart aches this morning. Today we say our goodbyes to a very special woman.
Nancy Gail Martin. 🖤
This is that person you always wanted on your side. She always had your back; no matter what with a smile on her face. I met Miss Nancy about 7 years ago at Bluebonnet Cafe. Working together we made an amazing team and created beautiful memories from the start. Nancy always had the best stories to tell. This woman could literally eat her weight in ice cream everyday. She had a spoonful of peanut butter before bed every night and she spoiled her pup rotten. She was proud of her life and thankful that God gave her a good one.
Nancy was so proud of her family. Every time they would visit she would ask me to take care of them. "Make sure they do not get the check!"
She had so much love for our family. Anytime there was an update, she had a know. What a beautiful soul. Bluebonnet won't be the same without you love.
Please say a prayer for Nancy sweet family. For the love that she showed me I can only imagine what it would feel like to be family. 🖤 I hope your dancing away with Don, and laughing about how to make the correct vegetable soup. You will always be in my heart.
I'm going to miss you so much Miss Nancy.
