I was so sad to hear of Nancy’s death. We had spoken in March and I had hoped to get to see her but it didn’t work out. We had many good times together and she had been a great support to me during some difficult times in my life
I was so very sorry to hear about Nancy’s death. We went back a long way when we worked together at St Joe’s. She was a free spirit and we had many fun times together. I had not seen Nancy for several years, the last time when her Mom was in the Hospice Center. Please know that I have many fond memories of her.
Thanks so much for your kind words, Linda. Nancy would be happy that you have good memories of her. Our family appreciates your being Nancy’s friend.
