Nancy and I met in 1998. We became good friends.
I will always remember her smile, her humor, her kindness, fun spirit and generosity.
When she walked in room, she lit it up!
She will be dearly missed!

I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make. Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories. We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love. Leo Buscaglia
Nancy was that kind of Mother. We offer condolences to the entire Duty family especially our son-in-love, Steve.

Mrs. Nancy was like a second momma the moment I met her I was her care giver for 6 months or so but I didn’t feel like her care giver I felt like her family Our late night talks brought us closer each time Ever Saturday night was our popcorn and movie night My most special moment was when we laid in her bed and cuddled as I would play with her hair till she feel asleep I will miss her dearly She’s not just my friend she’s my family as well as her children and grand children I love them all
