    Though only knowing Nancy for a few short months, our bond was strong from the start. I don't believe you could find a better person to spend time with. I am so grateful to have known her and will love her always.

    I was a fellow Unity member in Norwalk CT where Nancy and I first met. She was a kindred spirit and offered loving guidance with humor and sincerity. She loved her family and her church and was an angel to many. I am sure she is shining her love throughout the heavens as we were so blessed to know her.

    My deepest condolences for your loss. I hope you are able to find comfort in the scriptures at Acts 24: 15 and John 5: 28,29 which gives us a resurrection hope. At Revelation 21: 3-5 God brings out that in the future there will be no more pain and suffering. And we can look forward to what is written in Psalm 37: 9-11 and 29 about the meek will possess the earth. To find more information please visit jw.org
