I am so very saddened to learn Nancy, a shining bright light, has left us. Nancy was a bright star on earth and will be one of the brightest in the heavens when we look skyward. A classmate, she was a true hero managing the scheduling, collections and organization of our most recent class reunion, as well as past reunions but she really took the lead in our last one. I admired her greatly for her fantastic attention to detail and smiling, pleasant mannerisms. And she was always at our reunion luncheons. She will be missed. My deepest sympathies to TI, her children, grandchildren, and siblings. She thought the world of her family. Rest in eternal peace, Nancy, after a life well lived.... Hugs to heaven and back.Read more

Yes, Well done, Nancy! You were a shining light in this dark world! I was sharing w/ a friend why some people linger after a heart attack or stroke. The Lord is soo merciful that He gives them time to get their effects in order. Since you had all your T's crossed and all your I's dotted, the Lord could take you straight home. I wish the last time I said goodbye to you after knitting, I had hugged you... love, Lynn
