Brian, I am sure that your many friends at Eastward Ho! share my sadness at the news of Nancy's passing. I will always remember the gorgeous gal with the beautiful smile and easy laugh and how she patiently listened to all of our endless golf stories and still managed to laugh at our lame jokes (especially yours!). I look forward to seeing you at our favorite place and sharing these wonderful memories.

I am so very sorry to hear of Nancy's passing. So many happy. memories of our time at the YMC. Nancy always had a smile and kind word for everyone. I admired her grace, intelligence, and loved her quirky sense of humor. She was the best nurse, always top notch. We have all lost a great lady and friend.

Very sorry to hear of Nancy’s passing. My sympathy to Brian and Robbie and families. We had some good times on Sherwood Road. Yet we both moved to the Cape and lost touch a few years back except for the Christmas cards. So very sorry....

Dear Brian, I was so saddened to learn of Nancy's passing. We worked together for many years in Yarmouth & she really was one of the kindest people I ever met. We shared alot of fun stories while working together. Nancy was the only person at YMC that my son, Jim, allowed to give him a shot. She truly was a treasure as well as being a very kind & patient nurse. I will keep you in my heart ❤💔❤ Fondly, Nancy Barabe
