    My heart hurts so much tonight. I lived Nancy like my mom. She was always there if you needed her with her asthma open in love for you...not just me but everyone. Nancy and Leroy married Mark and I 30 years ago on September 7th....My dear Nancy I know you are rejoicing tonight with Laura and Leroy...Eric is there too he loved you so much like we do give him a hug for us. I strive to be just half the women you were. I'll never forget what you instilled in my life being the example of God before us. See you soon precious angel.
