I always loved Nancy, and still considered her as my sister in law, even though they were divorced. She always had a smile on her face and don't remember a time ever, to have seen her mad or without her smile. She'll be missed, but I know we'll see her again someday. Love and prayers for Judy, Lori, and Ronnie, and their families.

So sorry for your loss. Alzheimers is such a rough illness. My mom passed away 2 months ago and my mother in law 4 months ago and both suffered with it for the last 12 years. Thoughts and prayers with you all. I sure enjoyed visiting with Nancy.

Precious, in the sight of the LORD, is the death of his saints.
~Psalm 116:15~
Nancy, was a very loving and caring sister-in-law. I will never forget when she and her two sweet, curly-headed daughters, became members of our family. Her love was deep for all of her family and friends. I'm sad that as the years passed, I didn't get to spend the time with her, that I should have. Sometimes living life gets in the way. However, any time we did see each other it's like we'd never been apart. That was Nancy. Very loving and forgiving. I'm in complete admiration of how her family cared for her since her diagnosis of Alzheimer's. They all took such great care of her, and she was able to stay in her own home. Truly, a wonderful thing. You're all in our thoughts and prayers. May the Lord comfort your hearts. Nancy is healed, and more alive now than ever. Heaven's gain, is your loss. We love you all.
