Dear Nancy. Thanks for the memories. I am glad that you and I had a chance to play together. As adults it was all about going out for coffee. I think about you often. I miss you every day. Love. Your big sister Patty
My heart and prayers are with the Apgood and Breen families. I spent many hours at the family home with Anne and remember Nancy well.
I got to know Nancy Breen in high school and she was very funny and always very nice to me. she was very intelligent too. I am sorry for your loss, our loss. Jeannine (Uhrich) Elms
To all of you, thank you so much for your kind and loving thoughts. I miss her every day and my heart swells with her memory and I am awed by the fact that she chose me all these years.
What a fun gang we had at Assumption. I was thinking the other day what everyone was doing and the next day I heard of your passing. Say hello to my beloved Tammi. I miss you both.
Nancy and I would walk home from Assumption School together just about every day. We would talk about inventing flying desks so we wouldn't have to carry our school books so far.
Even though it has been a long time since we lost touch, I just want the Apgood and Breen Families to know that your tears are our tears.
That those we love don't go away.
They walk beside us everyday.
Until we meet again, my friend.

For the family. My mother, Mary Kenny Roberts, was one of Fran Breen's best and dearest friends. I went to high school with Nancy's brother, Paul. I want to send my condolences to the family and let you know our family is thinking of your family in this time of sorrow. Take care of yourselves. God bless.
nancy? you have ever been, ever were (and, yes, CONTINUE to be), one of a small handful of the finest women I've ever had the pleasure delight, and honor to know, share time and life with, and love...on every conceivable level, you ever radiated a light that never hid under a bushel...but, rather, SHONE, as a brilliant beacon, upon a hillside, to all the lands and inhabitants around and about you...i shall never forget your delightful laughter...it simply rocked foundations. i shall never forget your true, innate, spiritual beauty..let's talk RADIATION HERE! i shall never forget the simple wonder of your vibrant character and delight in living and your compassion toward others...we have all learned these, on a deeper level, because of you, nancy..you taught me deeply and truly, much about endurance, patience, sheer joy, forgiveness and everlasting, unconditional love over the years...i am truly so much the better for having known you, and been taught by your example, and am, accordingly, indebted to you, beyond measure; i wish i had, at-hand, the words to convey the unplumbed depths of my respect, admiration, appreciation and love of and for and toward you...give me another decade, or two, or maybe three, and i might be able to swing (articulate) that...but, rest now, beloved sister-in-law, knowing, at the very least, that i, and so many others, are so much the wealthier for having known you as a stalwart, trusted friend and an extraordinary part of our lives throughout all the years we lived in what shared and borrowed time was granted to us..you have truly touched so many lives in remarkable, wonderful ways during your far too short sojourn on this sorry old ball of dirt, nancy...again, on the deepest levels..you have made it, our time here, utterly worthwhile for the sheer splendor and wonder of your company...keep my seat warm, okay? :c)
My sincere condolences to your family. Nancy, thanks for being a friend so many years ago. The world would be a better place with more like you.
Many condolences to Nancy's family and friends. She was always kind and supportive. May the memories of her life bring comfort in this time.
I always appreciated Nancy's thoughtfulness, wit, directness and strength. She was fun. She was a great neighbor. She will be missed.
If reflaction of a parent is visible in their children, then I knew Nancy well via her son, Rob, a great friend of my son. Great wit, good humor, intelligence are all reflections I've witnessed. My heart goes out to her family, those wonderful people she left at such a young age.
I am sorry for your loss, Nancy was a very witty and charming leader of our class some time ago at Assumption. She was generally the center of attention throughout the day always treated everyone with respect and kindness. We didn't really stay in touch (Prep/Blanchet) after Assumption. It was very nice to run into her again and she was instantly recognizable some years later when both our families had children at ASB.
Nancy was a shining light that will be greatly missed. Her dazzling smile and charming demeanor would light up a room. She was always so much fun to be around. Her family is in my thoughts and prayers.
I will miss you Nancy. It gives me comfort that your spirit lives on in Robby and that you had the chance to hear your family and friends tell you how much you mean to us. Thank you for the gift of your friendship and thank you for your straight talking honest take on the world. It always made me think and usually made me laugh.
My deepest sympathy to Nancy's entire family. I only knew her for a short time, but it was long enough for me to know the amazing spirit that was Nancy. She inspired me with her courage, determination, and love of life and those around her. I feel privileged to have known her and I look forward to seeing her again in Heaven, where I know she watches over us as we continue in our daily lives.
My Dear Nancy- thinking of you - my wonderful childhood friend and favorite girl up the street - wishing you and all those you leave behind deep peace.
Nancy you will be missed by all your friends at F5, we enjoyed working with you and will miss your great sense of humor and incredible determination.

To all who have known and loved Nancy, let's keep her in our heads and hearts forever. She gave us things no one else could. To me, from the age of 15 she gave me friendship that cured my shyness, showed me how to get out there in the world, have fun and be direct. I'm forever grateful to you dear brave funny and strong Nancy.
