ADD A MEMORY

She was not only my Mother-in-law she was a great friend and MeeMaw to Jessica and Christopher. Nancy had many ceramic figurines in the living room and she would babysit her grandson Christopher. Well he knew not to touch them. She reminded me of this the Saturday before she passed. I then had my daughter Jessica who would always try and touch them. Well Christopher knew better and kept telling Jessica "I wouldn't do that if I were you" each time she tried to touch. Nancy shared that memory with me at Gilchrist. Going to miss her.

Love Jennifer
