My deepest sympathy on Nancy's passing. We were sorority sisters at Bradley and I have many good memories. Her smile and positive attitude always brightened the room. Blessings to your family. Rest In Peace.

Nancy was my friend, workout and adventure partner. We shared a sisterhood of stories and laughter together. This summer we planned on walking our granddaughters together. I believe we still will.

Most of all Nancy loved her family. She enjoyed your dinners at the Olive Garden as well as home cooked meals. Nancy loved her kittens and her garden. A few of our adventures were to garden shops where we both decided to plant a redbud tree in our garden. The attached photo was taken at the butterfly house at the Chicago Botanical Gardens. It was a beautiful summer day that I will cherish. Above all Nancy is a beautiful soul.

David though I never met you I did meet your children when they were very young. I am heartbroken at your loss of Nancy. Please accept my utmost sympathy and prayers for all of you at this time. At Sigma Kappa Rosey was always fun loving and kind to all. What a beautiful smile. Blessings to all of you.

We will all hold dear our special memories of Nancy. I can hear the gentleness of her voice, yet the strength if an ump "did her Zach wrong"! She loved strong and hard, her family, her friends, her kitties. Nancy has a forever place in my heart and will be greatly missed. May your body and soul rest in peace, dear friend.

Please accept my sympathy at Rosey's passing. We were sorority sisters, and reconnected a few years ago. She has been in my thoughts and every prayer these past few months. I hope your best memories of her offer you some solace during this tough time. I loved my Rosebud, she was always a source of light and love. I shall miss her dearly. Memory Eternal.

Dear David, I was very saddened to hear of Nancy's passing. I recall our discussions about Zach, and also remember the very difficult time when your daughter passed away. May you be well and blessed with good fortune and happiness.
