Not sure what to say?

Gene,
I am very sad to here you lost Nancy. My thoughts and prayer are with you and you family. Carol and I re currently in New Zealand, I will plan on giving you a call when we get back in September. I look forward to seeing you then. Take care of yourself.
Best Regards

My cousin Nancy brought a great deal of happiness to our family many years ago when we were all quite a bit younger. We enjoyed many holidays together. Losing her at such a young age must be very painful. I wish peace and healing for Gene and the entire family.

I met Nancy when we served on the NAMI board. She was a very special woman-- very caring for others and someone who dearly loved her family. I will greatly miss her. She will always be an inspiration to me.

I am so glad that John and I got to meet your mom for Sammy's birthday. I loved how she looked at the family with proud eyes. I also loved how soft spoken and proper she was. May God bless her soul and give you the comfort you need at this time. May all the wonderful moments you shared continue to live through your family.

David and Dorsey Family. I never met your mom David. But I know you. You are a good man and that just doesn't happen. You took care of my cousin and took her daughter as your own. That just doesn't happen either. I'm so sorry for your family's loss and for your pain. I look up to you David and wish I was half the man you are. And that just doesn't happen. Your mom taught you well my friend. My heart hurts for you. If I can do anything , please let me know. Cancer hurts us all. But your mom is...

If I'm ever honest, this comes from my mom. And if I'm ever kind to someone less fortunate than myself (which isn't often enough), then that comes from my mom, too. So do lots of other small but important things, like emptying the dishwasher or doing some laundry (although not like her. She used to do 5-6 loads a day). I have lots of thoughts floating around in my head about mom. I will have to sit down at some point and write more of them. I wish we had her here longer, but as I told her...

Missing you every day. Playing your voice mails over and over just to hear your voice. I will strive to be the dedicated wife and mom that you were. Thank you for blessing my kids by being their grandma. Save a place for me, mom. I love you

Nancy and I served on the board of Nami together. She will forever have special place in my heart. I enjoyed our visits together. She will truly be missed. Love Susan

For my dear cousin Nancy who I knew mostly during childhood and remember her smile and warmth with fondness.
