Not sure what to say?

I just sent a friend request on facebook to you today old friend. I was saddened to hear of your passing. I so remember all the good times we shared in high school. You were such a ray of sunshine. I visited your house one evening and your mother had a guest book that I signed. I wrote that you had a beautiful home. Every time after high school when we would get together at reunions you would remind me of my entry. I will always remember you Nancy as a person with a peaceful spirit. May you...

I knew we would be friends the first time we met. Nancy had an infectious laugh and a great sense of humor. I have wonderful memories of our days at OU: playing cards on New South, dancing at Swanky's and playing foosball at the Union (we were awesome). Our WW 50's reunion in Austin was like picking up where we left off.
Nancy, I will miss you.

Nancy, I will miss you.

Hi Nancy! You may not be physically here but you ARE here, in our memories, always laughing...dancing...enjoying life. RIP.

I met dear, fun, funny Nancy when we danced together in our very first SF Carnaval parade in 1988, and we shared so many fun times. I could always count on her to know every step (and I could follow her when I forgot!) She was a wonderful spirit, I loved her sense of humor, I'll always treasure our friendship and will think of her every time I dance. Larry and Judy and family, you are in my thoughts.

Though we lost touch with Nancy over the last few years we shared a lot of good times and will always remember her as a happy, sincere and dear friend and fellow OU Bobcat. We extend our deepest sympathy to her family.

I'm so sad to hear of the loss of Nancy. I hope memories will sustain family and friends.

Nancy, AKA Trout, (from our Ohio University days) will leave us all with memories of good times, laughter, and dancing. We've all been blessed to have known her. Her positive spirit was genuine and so infectious. Our sincere condolences to Larry and the family.

Nancy's beautiful spirit will live on and on. I knew Nancy through the samba community. She was a joy to watch and to dance with. Her lovely spirit lives on in samba reggae.

I worked with Nancy at Genentech. She was so full of life that it's hard to believe she is gone. I know that she will be greatly missed by everyone who worked with her. My deepest condolences to her family and to those dear friends who were lucky enough to be close to Nancy. I will be thinking of Nancy on Friday during the memorial service.
