Aunt Nance was such an inspiration to me. She lived her life on her terms. She was always up for having a good time and I am truly grateful for all the precious memories I have with her. She was always so thoughtful, often stopping by to visit mom and dad while dropping off a loaf of her delicious homemade banana bread. She was a shoulder to cry on and a confidant to share things with I wouldn’t dare share with mom 😉. We enjoyed the same type of books so I always knew when I needed a recommendation, she was my trusted go-to. Thanks for all the wonderful, happy and priceless memories, Aunt Nance. You will be sorely missed but I’m happy you went out the way you would have wanted to and you are no longer in physical distress. Until we meet again... ❤️
