Sal, I am so sorry for your loss. Nancy and her sisters, Linda and Barbee, were a big part of 60's Clermont. I'm glad we saw her at the reunion and meet the man who brought her much happiness. Condolences to you and your family.

So very sad to hear of Nancy's passing. Every time a Clermont
alum passes, a part of me goes. R.I.P. Nancy. "We'll see you on
the other side."

I also remembered all the wonderful times we had growing up together and Nancy's family also. I particularly remember when we were in college and the Elks Club hosted the Danish families: we had Danish" boyfriend" pen pals. I am so glad I got to spend some quality time with Nancy and her husband at our 50th reunion. See you later Nancy in the Paradise which is now your home.

Very saddened to hear about this. God will take care of his own. The pain is only felt by those of us left behind, all the promises and glories of heaven are Nancy's to enjoy. Enjoy your self.

Nancy was such a gentle soul, and one of the seniors I really enjoyed knowing during my year with her in high school. Thanks to social media, we reconnected, and she and Sal attended our fiftieth reunion. What a blessing to see her again after all those years, and to finally meet her beloved Sal. She always had the kindest things to say about Sal, and I can only imagine the pain he is feeling now. Godspeed Nancy.
