Our hearts are heavy and deeply saddened from learning of Nancy's passing. There was no one kinder, sweeter, or more compassionate than Nancy. We met Nancy and John when they lived in CT. I remember Nancy as a young Mother to Jonathan and Matthew. My parents considered them as extended members of our family, as do we. I will miss Nancy's lovely, cheerful voice, as we shared stories of our sons and grandchildren. Nancy will forever be a role model of love, courage, and kindness. We feel blessed she touched our lives. Our prayers and thoughts are with you John, Jonathan, and Matt. Cynthia and Dennis

Dear John, Jonathan, and Matt,
We are so sorry to hear about Nancy's passing. I have many good memories of her when I would stop in the office after school and sports practices. She was always so kind and I am thankful that she was able to attend our wedding and reception. I wish she could have met our daughter Maisey. She was always so kind and concerned about my grandparents as their health declined. Most of all she was a blessing to my mother and I know that her friendship meant so much to my mom. I'll be keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time. Love, Mike, Julie (Laubach) and Maisey Lang
