Dear Sonny, Tim and family, Please accept my deepest condolences with the passing of Nancy. She was a great lady, a wonderful co-worker many years ago at the nursing home and it was so great to reconnect when Ethan and Tom became friends. She was so good to the boys when they wanted to hang out together. Thinking of you all at this time and treasure your memories of her for she will always live in your heart. OX Linda Ross

Sonny, Wayne & families, I am so very sorry for your loss, I remember your mom always had a big smile for me whenever I ran into her, usually at the grocery store. xo

My heartfelt thoughts are with all of Nancy's family & friends. I think of the many conversations with Nancy at the video store, but more lately while meeting at the Holstein store. We often spoke of her puppy, the weather, her grandchildren & our children. She was proud, someone I always admired. We only enjoyed brief conversations, but sweet memories were made. May your precious memories bring you strength.

So sorry to hear about Nancy, I lived above the video store her and Fred owned. She was always such a nice woman.
