Dear Harvey Family,

The last time I saw Nancy/your mom was when she and Robert attended my Dad's funeral and reception. Now, all these years later, another connection is being made at the passing of one of your own. But long before either of those sad occasions and times of sorrow, are abundant memories of snowmobiling on pint-sized snowmobiles, expecting one German Shepard puppy to come home with us and instead two, a baby raccoon abandoned and rescued at Look Park by my sister and then adopted by Nancy to live out its life on Nash Hill, an hysterical story about one much-loved, goofy Irish Wolfhound absconding off with an entire roast beef which had been cooked to perfection and resting on the dinner table prior to serving, Christmas trees that stayed up long past the holiday season (as they should, thank you Nancy), cottage living (and partying), playing Pong and pool in the basement, painted candles as well as Nancy's talent with painting pine trees and the cover of the 1976 Cinquefoil yearbook which was graced with three such trees drawn by her hand, Wendy's amazing converted attic bedroom, food, food and more food, oh - and that incredible stash of Pepsi which to a kid was just this side of paradise...and always on a Sunday, listening, waiting, and hoping to hear mom and dad tell us we were going to "The Harvey's" for a visit. :-) Just a handful of the memories that are intricately woven into my childhood and teen years and recalled so easily because they are indeed so plentiful. For all of them and the smiles they bring, I am grateful.

To Nancy - a life well-lived, a superbly graceful woman, well-loved and well-loving - surely to be missed and fondly remembered. You were one-of-a-kind.

Bob, Wendy, Todd and Kurt and extended family,

Words cant express the sadness that I felt when I learned of Nancy's passing. I know there are no words that can take away the sorrow that you all feel at this time. My hope is that these words can find you just a moment of comfort during this sad time. Nancy was that rare person who was always the giver, never a taker. Always sharing a genuine greeting with all she met. Forever giving all a warm smile, a hug, a laugh, a witty comment, a beverage (or 12), or a meal that was ALWAYS over the top. Nancy had a gift of turning something as simple as PBJ sandwich into a work of art so that it was the best PBJ sandwich one ever had. That was who Nancy was, always going above and beyond no matter how small the task to make you feel that you were special. Nancy will be forever missed by all who were blessed to have been called "a friend" of Nancy's. Colossal hugs to all-Shaun Brennan

Bob: We will always fondly remember the many exceedingly fun times we had years ago with the Northampton clan. Dartmouth trips, golf outings, fishing expeditions on the Cape, etc. Oh and always Nancy's incredible food....... So sorry we have lost touch over the years. Our deepest sympathies to you and your family. Mike and Beth Crowley

Dear Bob,
Michelle and I offer are deepest sympathy to you, your family and Andrea. I will always remember the overwhelming hospitality that Nancy showered on us when my brother and I stayed at your lovely home. I can recall the visit vividly and how she made me feel like we were family. She truly was a witty, warm and gracious person.

Bob and Family, We're so sorry for this loss. We really enjoyed the time with Nancy - her fun humor, strong spirit, and interest in hearing about us, particularly hockey. All our love, The Simonetty Family

Bobby: my heart has a huge hole in it and you know why. Your full of sunshine beautiful girl was my best friend at dancing school, jr. high, buying gardenias in Boston, attending Belmont Hill assemblies and will forever be in my heart. I have never trusted anyone more or laughed as hard as we did over the years. Consider this a huge hug for you and yours from Jill Henderson
