So sorry to hear of your lose!! I have many memories of your family as neighbors in Silvis.The last time I saw you Nancy was at the annual gathering of your classmates from UTHS at Frank´s Pizza. I was so surprised & happy to see you there & reconnect! I think I knew more people at that event then hubby Steve who graduated with you. He was married 60 years to another classmate of yours,Arline Schneck, also my first cousin. She passed 7 years ago after fighting cancer for 9 1/2 years. Very special lady!! Please let your kids know that I´m thinking of them too in their loss of a good father & great role model!! Blessings & Love, Connie
