Nancy I will always remember your flowers. The love you had for your Children, Grandchildren, and your Husband Kent. I promise you that I will be the Best Grandma to Jazmin, Jack. I will never let them forget you. I will tell them stories about you and let them know what you did for them. How much you loved them. I Promise you that. You were one of the most strongest Lady I have ever met. Ken and I are so blessed to have known you. I know where you are right now is so wonderful...that there are no words to describe it. See you on the other side Girl one day. All my heart and love to you. God Bless you you are so loved.

I may never have personally met Nancy, but I know she had a big caring heart. She was always the first neighbor donating items for needing rescue groups of dogs/cats.

May she be at peace in heaven now with family and 4-legged rescue friends, Sympathy to all her family.
