    I remember the many trips Jack, Nancy and girls made to our farm in WV. Also remember Jack coming to stay a week during deer season, he loved Mom’s fodder beans! (A WV thing!). Nancy loved antiques! Our thoughts and prayers are with you Lisa and Alexa and family.

    I have fond memories of Nancy from first grade on. We were classmates and graduates of Mullens High School Class of 1944. My thoughts are with you and your family. She was a great lady and will be missed.
