Dear Rich, Rich, Donna, Richie and Dayna,
I was so saddened to hear of Nancy's passing. She was a dear woman and I know your hearts ached in your loss. But I pray that the precious memories you all have of her will be remembered long and that you will remember her with smiles and laughter, for she brought many of those into the lives of those around her. And I pray that you will ultimately be able to rejoice that she is now with her heavenly father who loves her best. We grieve with you from across the world. Peace. Dawn Ulrich

My sympathy to the Brooks family. Nancy was my student teacher at Osborne Elementary School in Sewickley many years ago! She was just a joy!

When we moved next door 27 years ago Mr and Mrs Brooks was the first neighbors to welcome us to the neighborhood. She always made us feel welcomed into her family.

To Mrs. Brooks,
You were a woman of beauty, intelligence, and kindness. Your chosen profession as an educator showed the great depths of your heart. You had a marriage that most people can only dream of, a husband and wife who adored each other to the end. You can be proud of the wonderful family (both children and grandchildren) that your marriage produced. It's a testament to your fine character. My family and I have been blessed to be your neighbors. The Baxter's
