Not sure what to say?

My dear Grandma... I grew up in that house she lived in for so long. My siblings and cousins and I would put on grandma's clothes and make-up. Grandma would take pictures of us posing and looking pretty... Oh if I could turn back time... I still smell the perfume lingering in the air. I miss you more than you know. I knew time was fading so my sister and I stopped by to talk with Grandma and show her that we love her... That night she went into the hospital... I didn't want to believe...

Our lives were blessed when our daughter, Bonnie, married Richard; not only because we love Rick but also because we met his mother, Nancy. She has been a good friend in our lives and a joy to know. We wish her entire family peace and comfort at this time.

Nancy was a great friend to my Mom and our family. During my Dad's long stay in the nursing home she faithfully spent time with Mom on Friday nights, keeping her spirits up.

Nancy always seemed to look for the positive or the humorous, even in times of pain and heartache.

She loved her family, cats included and her friends. We are all better for having her in our lives and she will be missed.

Nancy had a deep influence on my young life, when I was just entering my teens and she was almost past them. I looked up to her, wanted to be just like her, and loved her very much. She was my idol.

I went on to be an attendant at her wedding, and she at mine. But, life has a way of interfering and wee grew apart physically as each of us busied ourselves raising our own families.

I did not see Nancy before she left us, but I will never forget the image of that...

Nancy & I were playmates, the same age. I was in love with her, but I found out at age 8 you couldn't marry a first cousin and I was crushed. Nancy was the epitome of grace, forgiveness and caring. Her radiance, that spakle in her eyes, will never be forgotten. Not by me. I'll be seeing you, Nancy. I have a ways to go before I join you again someday.

I feel a great loss with the passing of Nancy, a gentle spirit with granite strength in her love of family, home, friends and neighbors. She possesed a wonderful smile & laugh. She worked tirelessly helping and supporting her family, each of you with a smile in her heart. I have known her since she was our family babysitter, many moons ago! My parents moved onto the block just down the the alley from the Ballard family over 58 years ago. My Mother, now resides as one of the last...

Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.Nancy will be deeply missed.

As a kid, Nancy always was there to fix me up when I got hurt. One time, Deb and I were told not to play in the station wagon. Well, we did, and I locked my hand in the car door. Another time, Deb, Frank Kovarick, and I went for a bike ride. I gave Deb a buck on Brian's banana bike. We were told not to ride Brian's bike, but we did, and we slid down a freshly graveled hill. I showed up at Nancy's front door all scraped up. She took one look at me and said, "I'm so glad I have red...
