Howard and Family, I am so sad to hear of Nancy's passing. Every time I saw her at Skylines, she had a beautiful smile. Especially, when paging through her puppy books or watching you come across the parking lot to be with her at lunch. May you and family find comfort in wonderful memories of Nancy.

Dear Howard & Family,

We are in Florida so won't be able to give our condolences in person, but want you to know we are thinking of you today.

Even though our friendship was a mid-life one, we felt a bond whenever we saw each other and passing of time did not change it. All we had to do was spot each other at church and then the smiles and laughs erupted.

I will never forget her fun spirit as we spent time w/our contractor husbands in Las Vegas at the National Home-builders' Convention. Our shopping escapades were unequaled...she even showed me how to take our purchased shoes out of the boxes and stash them in our suitcases to get them home!

Memories of our friendship will last forever...and a special hug to Sally, my tennis partner.

Our love,

Linda Baum
