What a blessing it was to be Nancy's friend. I cannot remember a time - even in her difficult health moments - when she was not upbeat and positive. She simply glowed with the love of Christ. It was a joy to hear her speak of her precious family, who were her heart. Sending you love and prayers for peace.

What a wonderful friend Nancy was to me. She was responsible for me moving too Arlington and obtaining a job teaching at Bailey which I kept for 27 years! I loved Nancy’s smile, laugh and always making the best of any situation!! She will be missed.
