    Janet and family, Nancy was one of a kind. A kind heart with a passion for life whether church, family, friends or business. She was so good to so many people. I am saddened for your loss but wanted to let you know that Nancy stories come up every time I’m cooking her soups or tackling a puzzle with my family.
