I never met Nancy, but I know she must be in that choir in the heavens. She sang in my husbands band and he said she was a very good singer. Maybe they are singing togeather again. God bless you all

I will miss you with all my heart grandma. I have so many wonderful memories with you.You always made me feel like the little boy at Christmas who just got the greatest present ever. But the biggest gift was having you as my grandma. I love you, and you will never be far from my heart. :)

My deepest sympathies go out to family and friends of Grandma Nancy. The legacy she has left behind in family and extended family is profound. I will never forget her warmth and acceptance as my children & I were "blended" into her world. We have all been blessed in knowing her.

With loving thoughts and memories, Nancy, you will be greatly missed.

Grandma, can't stop thinking about you. You are such a strong woman and I hope I can be as good of a mother as you were. I'm so happy I got to hold your hand with juju sunday night, you make her smile and she was talking to you. I can't believe you're a great great grandma to my babies!!! I love you forever and will always remember when you said I was your little butterfly that has not found her flower. xoxoxoxooxoxoxoxoox!
