    Our hearts are broken for you Rainie and. John, her boys and Scott and esp. Katy who was Nancy’s charge. She gave so much these last years and her picture is absolutely beautiful. I have missed her on FB the last year and she will continue to be missed. She was one of MY kids. Thanks for sharing your girls with me in school.

    My deepest sympathy to Nancy’s family at this difficult time.

    I was one of Nancy’s college roommates and Alpha Phi sisters. She could light up a room with her enthusiasm and I’ll never forget the fun adventures we shared.

    My heart goes out to the loved ones Nancy left behind. May she Rest In Peace.
