Dear Tommy, Bobby, Glenda, Cathy, and family, My heart goes out to all of you in your loss of Nancie. She was such an amazing person and I knew her all of my life. She was such a good friend to Mom and to our family. Even in their older years, Mom and Nancie would enjoy each other’s company so much. When Mom was in rehab at Kings Grant in 2016, we searched all over looking for Nancie. When we found her, they had a happy conversation. They had been friends since the late 1940’s! May God bless you and comfort you and give you peace. Love, Susan Reeves

My Mom Rocked! Below is a post I wrote in 2016. Still holds true today!

My mom taught me all the social skills I needed for life. She clothed me, fed me and raised me to behave. I have to admit the behave part may not have been engraved too deep! She taught me how to set a perfect table, throw a family gathering and how to put up with spoiled men. She taught me how to be independent and to persevere through challenges. She taught me to love the arts. She taught me that you can run a business and a home. She taught me how to sit and sing in the choir loft at church without crossing my legs. Mom made Christmas Eve, Christmas, Easter, and Thanksgiving a marvelous, special day. My mom switched me down the driveway if I didn't come home for dinner when she called me. If she had to call the Campell's house to get me, it was a switching with the yellow bell tree limb and a room confinement. My mom made duck costumes, Revolutionary War costumes, Polish dance costumes, Halloween costumes, musical costumes and prom dresses. My mom wasn't a good hugger but I know she loved and loves me. Funny how now we share a disease, I understand her so much more now than then. If all my students had a mom like mine, teachers would line up to teach. I hope I am teaching my kids the same. Not to be forgotten, she taught me compassion.
