    I was so upset to hear of Nancy’s death. She was the sweetest person you could ever meet. She kept a smile on her face from ear to ear, and she never met a stranger. I ran into years ago at Family Market. She just ran up to me and gave .me the biggest hug. It was so good to see her. God bless you Nancy and all those that loved you. RIP Have fun in heaven girl, A lot of our friends are there. I hear there is a big banquet coming up, so I will see you there then. Love you, Christy
