I loved the very 1st time I met Nancy. I had cooked an abundance of food for Thanksgiving 7 years ago, and I called her best friend and neighbor Beth Jordan to ask her if I could make her a couple of plates of food and bring it over. She said " That would be great"!!!
So I loaded her up a smorgasbord of food and took it over to her. While I was there, Nancy called Beth to chat, and she told Nancy that Robbie brought me Thanksgiving dinner. I took the phone from Beth and asked Nancy if I could make her a plate and bring it over... and she got ticked and said "Sure... that would be great"... So I jokingly took her order and ran back over to the house and loaded her up a smorgasbord as well. I took it over to her, and we talked for hours.
I only wish I had met Nancy along time ago so we could have spent more time together and enjoyed each other's stories and friendship.
Rest in peace you beautiful flower, and enjoy being the Angel you are!!!
Love and miss you Sweetheart!!!
Robbie and Duncan O'Dell
