Dear Don and family. My deepest sympathy go to all of you on loosing Nancy. Nancy and I were cousins and great friends while growing up. We spent many goods times taking turns on Sundays eating at my mom and dad's house ( aunt Claudine and Uncle Bill's) house or her mom and dad's house. We were friends as well as cousins. May the good memories you have of her comfort you through this difficult time. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. May the Lord comfort all of you.
