Not sure what to say?

I love you Grandma! I really miss you, but I know that you are watching over us and with Jesus! I always loves when we made monster cookies together! I LOVE YOU A BUSHEL AND A PECK!

Kathy and I were saddened to hear of the loss of Nancy. Our time together with Parker and the boys in the Boy Scouts is cherished. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers.

Mrs Lessig taught all 4 of my children at Linwood Elementary. She was a very caring, compassionate teacher. I am very sorry for your loss.

Nancy Lessig's 5th grade class at Hillcrest Grade School, Lawrence, Kansas 1966-67

To the Lessig family, please accept my condolences on the loss of Nancy. She was my fifth grade teacher at Hillcrest, and if any teacher left a happy memory for me from elementary school, Mrs. Lessig would be at the top of the list. She encouraged my creativity in art and writing, and the mornings after our favorite TV shows aired, we would talk about them (Star Trek, Mission Impossible). She was COOL.

Dear Parker Aaron & Eric, I was so sad to hear of Nancy's death. I first met Mrs. Lessig as my fifth grade teacher at Hillcrest Elementary and she quickly became my favorite teacher yet. I was so happy to find that she was a Delta Gamma alum when I pledged DG at KU. I hope that you know how many lives she touched and find some joy and comfort in hearing how much she meant to all of us. Thinking of you & Nancy today.

To the family, Mrs Lessig was my third and fifth grade teacher. She was the first teacher I had when I moved into the Linwood district. She taught us Edgar Allan Poe's The Raven and that's the moment that I fell in love with literature. It was her passion and love for teaching that influenced me to become a teacher too. This August I began on my path to becoming a public school teacher through the transition to teaching program. I teach and study simultaneously to earn my license. I am...

So sorry to for your loss. Wishing & praying the best for you all.

We are saddened to hear this sudden news. Our prayers are with your family in this difficult time. I know Nancy was welcomed with open arms in Heaven by our Lord and Savor, Jesus Christ. Mom and Granny Pat will consume a lot of her time! We look forward to celebrating her life on Thursday. Love, Bobby Pielsticker
