Nancy is missed. She was my first support system 20 years ago when I began my position with the schools. Throughout all ours years working together she never failed to help me or her students or her colleagues. She never failed to lend an ear, whether work or life to discuss. My deepest condolences to her family and friends. Wishing you comfort and peace.
