    Windell, David, Linda, Kenny, Grandchildren, Great-Grandchildren and extended family, All of you are in my thoughts and prayers. Nancy loved her family so very much. I know all of you will miss her a lot. She loved Jesus and looked to Him during good times and hard times. She was a kind, loving sister-in-law. I remember when our children were pre-school age. We lived in VA. We would always go home for Christmas. Nancy and I had so much fun going shopping together for our kids. Back then for many years we had a big Christmas celebration at Granny and Pa's house. Nancy and her siblings and their spouses bought gifts for every child, niece and nephew in the family. There were lots of children. The gifts were not expensive, but they were always fun for the children and even more fun for us as parents watching their faces as they opened each gift. Then all the kids played together with their new toys. I can still see the smile on Nancy's face and sparkle in her eyes watching the children play. Nancy believed in Jesus as her Savior and I know she is in Heaven happier than ever before. I miss the opportunity to talk with her and look forward to one day being re-united in Heaven. I love you all.

    Aunt Nancy, I am at a loss for words to be honest. It was such a shock to hear of your passing. I didn't see that coming. I am thankful for the times we have shared together and the phone conversations we have had. We were there for each other with the passing of my mom and your sister. To my family I am sorry for your loss. I am praying for you guys, I love you all. Love, Larry St. Clair
