was sorry to learn of Nancy's passing. I enjoyed her energy and enthusiasm in everything she did. While working for a local bank, I admired a pin that Nancy had on one day and the next day she presented it to me in a box - surely only one of the many acts of kindness that Nancy performed on a regular basis. Blessings to her family as she now has her heavenly reward.

Dear Paul and Liz,
We are so sorry to hear of Nancy's passing. We grew to love her, as well as you, Paul, and your best friend Link, when you visited us at Cool Beans. She always had a story to share, and a gift to present. I'm sure she's sharing a cup of coffee, and a good laugh, with our Lord as we speak. God bless and hold you dearly at this time. Our prayers are with you.
With love,
Kim and Brad Wolfe

RIP my dear Nancy! You will definately be missed by all who knew you. Your frequent visits to the station with flowers or small gifts were always a surprise and a pick me up on some days. I will miss our talks during the summer in your back yard when I'd bring Chase to work. I will cherish our friendship.

Paul & Liz, I am so sorry for your loss. I hope you can take comfort in the caring & love of you many many friends. You know where to find us if you need anything. Randi
