Dear Robin & Jay, my deepest condolences for your loss. I only met Nancy once, but I've heard so many wonderful things about her over the years. I pray that God's peace, strength, and comfort will sustain your entire family during this difficult time.

I am deeply saddened to hear of Nancy's passing and I offer my sincere condolences to her family. I know you will sorely miss such a wonderful presence in your lives. In these difficult times, you can find great comfort in the hope for the future present in the bible at Revelation 21:4. This scripture references future conditions on Earth, in which there will be no more suffering or death. There is also a hope found in John 5:28, 29.  The resurrection that this Bible verse talks about will give us the opportunity to see our lost loved ones again. I know it will be a joyous time when you can see Nancy's beautiful smile once more! I invite you to visit JW.ORG for more information on this comforting hope.

I am a classmate from SAHS Class of 1968. So glad to see Nancy at our 50th reunion held on Nancy’s 68th Birthday. Nancy was a friend and cohort and I will always appreciate her kindness and graciousness. She ways a major contributor to our scholarship fund supporting the SAHS Class of 2018. Condolences to Robin, extended family and friends of Nancy. She was very smart and also very talented. God Bless you Nancy. RIP
