She inspired me

Dear Nancy,

I am sorry to have missed you. As you inspire me and helped many in need during dark times,I wanted to return a gift more precious than any medal.
I had a son,William. And as you suffered and lost family,I wanted my son to have you as his Nana to repay your loss. It is Kiwi custom also,atawhai.

You are with your partner now,RIP Nana Wake. Love you always. Piripi.

I kinda like her acomplishments

Nancy was a genuine heroine. A woman who, having seen first hand the horrors that the Nazis were inflicting on Jewish people - she saw Jews who had done nothing wrong, tied to a wheel and being whipped - vowed then and there that she would do everything in her power, big or small, to help fight Hitler and his rotten party.

Condolences to the family and friends of Nancy Wake. In God's word, the Bible, he says that one day soon man will not learn war anymore - Isaiah 2:4 What a glorious prospect for all mankind to live in peace and harmony together on earth forever!

Nancy Wake you were a true hero in every sense of the word. Would have loved to have met you. Merci for everything you did in your lifetime so that my family and I could enjoy freedom. Viva le Nancy.

The bravest of women, her courage an inspiration to everyone.
