    This world was truly blessed having Nancy in it, having her gone will leave a huge void that can never be replaced. She was the sweetest, kindest and most generous woman I have ever know and I will miss her more than words can explain. She treated everyone she knew with such love and compassion and I was truly blessed to be one of those people. I will forever think of you as a mother and an amazing grandmother to my son. Rest in peace and watch over us all. My heartfelt condolences goes out to her family at this time.
