It breaks my heart to hear that Nan has passed. So many laughs she had in her. (Usually at Mary’s expense ha). So much love for her family and endless hours of phone chatter (multi lines) all day long. Her pride in each grandchild and their individual personalities. She was also proud of her daughters and their own mothering skills. Nan lived a very loved life, Love she gave and love she felt. She is gone way too soon. Hugs to all from Arizona.

Sending my sympathy to Nancy's family. She was a friend and former co-worker (years ago at Woolworths). I just saw her about 2 weeks ago. She will be missed. Ann Miller
