I grew up with Nancy on Sunrise Ave. She was truly a wonderful person. She was a couple of years older then myself. I always considered her a true mentor in an academic sort of way. Not only was she brilliant in basketball, she was always exceeding in her academic performance. I am sure she will be missed by many including myself.
