Nancy was a shiny bright star whom was a very kind and loving mother.  Nancy loved spending time with her family and friends.  Mom and Ricky always loved being outside each and every day with them both getting much fresh air by sitting out on the front porch and soaking up the sun.

We are all grateful for all the many memories we shared with our mother.  Mom you were “Our Greatest Love of All”.  We now know that God looked down upon you and knew it was time to bring you home to be with him and his guiding angels.
