I worked with Nancy for many years and grew to love and respect her. We had many laughs and many good talks. I will always cherish those times. So thankful to God she is finally at her eternal home and I will see her again someday.

Thank you for the 18 years of loving me as your own Grandson, never having the gift of having a Grandma growing up, it meant more than you could know. While I couldn't always be there in the beginning, I feel blessed to have been there in those last days. "Sin's curse has lost its grip on me For I am His and He is mine Bought with the precious blood of Christ.."
