What a gem was Nancy. She is happy as can be in her Heavenly Home.
Aunt Nancy was the most beautiful and kind Aunt anyone could ever want. She loved cooking for any of us visiting from Fort Wayne when they lived in Richmond. How we all loved visiting with our Aunt and Uncle, they were just so much fun to be with. Aunt Nancy was the very best cook and such a lovely hostess. All of my children have said such gracious words about her in their texts to me when they heard she had passed away. We all have fond memories of Nancy! May you rest in peace, Aunt Nancy. Amen
