I still cannot believe that Nancy has left this life. We carpooled to MSU back in the day & I had the privilege of having her Mom, Ann, as my mentor teacher at VIS when I started teaching. I loved being in the room with them together as they were just both amazing women. I am very sorry for your loss.

My heart was sadden to read about the the loss of Nancy and wanted to give my warmest condolences to the family. To lose someone so well loved can bring such sadness but the God of all comfort tells us at 2 Kings 20:5 He feels our pain. At we can read in the Bible John 5:28,29 that not only does God care but it will move him to remove all the suffering he sees and gives assurance that you will have her in your life once again. May all the beautiful memories you have give you calm and peace until God’s promises come true. Again so very sorry for your heartache. 💐

I have such wonderful memories of Nancy. You girls were so young, hope you remember the big, beautiful red petunias you gave me after our first year of gymnastics together. I will never forget the hard workouts Nancy and I shared. She was a great friend. I love her . You are in my prayers.
