I am very saddened by Nancy’s passing. I got to know Nancy, and came to adore her, through my volunteer work with Oasis at St. Joseph. We spent lots of time talking and sharing stories about the old days. When my volunteer work would be finished, I stayed and talked with Nancy for another hour, just laughing and catching up. Nancy quickly became a friend to me and I will miss her very much.
