Lana, and boys and families...
I’m at a loss with words. Nancy was one of the kindest, most caring friends I’ve had. We had so much fun, cried together, ate together, and shopped together! I miss her so much. She loved you all and was always concerned about how you were doing. She was beautiful inside and out. I was blessed to have her as a friend!
So Sorry to hear about Nancy. Prayers going up for Family and Friends! Marie Boothroyd sends her Love.
David,Brian and Corey I was sorry to learn of Nancy"s passing. You are all in my thoughts. I remember how Nancy loved her dogs and Becky and I want to send a gift to the humane shelter in her memory. I moved to Fremont due to health problems four years ago and regret that I cannot come to the service, but remember you are in my thoughts. Judy Walker
