    My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. I went to school, and hung around, with Nancy when we were teenagers. But, I’m sorry to say, I haven’t seen her in years. I have lost track of alot of my classmates, regretfully, and wish I had kept in touch with them. Nancy has gone to a better place now and is home with our Lord and savior, and I know I will see her again when it’s my time to go home.

    Howard, Holly and Mary – My heart goes out to you during this period of mourning. Your mother was like a mom to me and cared for me like I was one of her own. I will never forget the time spent around her and Roger hearing their laughter.
    You know I am here for you, as you have been for me.
    Love y’all
