    My deepest condolences to the dear family. I had the pleasure of meeting her through her grand-daughter Hannah, and it was such a blessing and she made such an impact on soo many. My son was able to attend the merging in christ youth camp free of charge for two years and it was one of the best experiences for him and our family as well.. Nancy touched soo many families and so many more will be touched through these amazing kids at this awesome camp. She was a wonderful lady who brightened everyone's day daily. Her passion was her grand kids and family and her light will forever shine through them. Much love and prayer
