    I am so sorry for your loss. I hope your faith will help carry you through this most difficult time. I am sure if there is anything one of Nancy's many friends can do for you all you need to do is reach out and we will do what ever we can. Nancy will be missed both as a Red Hat sister and as part of our canasta group on Mondays at the senior center.
