  1. Nance, words can’t express how heartbroken I am over your passing. I’ll always look back on how thoughtful and caring you were. Ryan and I will go see Hamilton in February in your honor, I wish you could have gone with me, thank you so much for the tickets. I’ll always remember you bringing over my favorite fruit every time I saw you and all the special things you picked up for the kids. I so wish you could be here still to watch them grow but I promise we will keep your memory alive always with stories and pictures of you. I’ll take care of Ryan forever and will help him through this tragic time. I love you, I’m so thankful that you are my mother in law. I hope you’re somewhere beautiful with your dad and brother right now.

  2. You will be dearly missed Nancy, you were such a kind and patient nurse and a strong patient advocate. You made us all laugh and took us new nurses under your wing and helped us fly. Heaven gained a beautiful soul.
