Happy Birthday to my dear, sweet friend. I miss you so much. I know you are in a better place, and I am so thankful you are pain free. But, selfishly I want you to still be here with us. I want to thank you for always being there for me when I needed it. I will always cherish our wonderful friendship. You were a blessing to so many people. I look forward to being with you again in the presence of our Heavenly Father. Prayers of comfort for all you family and friends. John 15:12 "This is My commandment, that ye love one another as I have loved you."

I have had such a tough time trying to write this because no words can accurately describe Nancy and how I feel about her. It's been almost two months since I lost the best friend I ever had and I still think about her every day. I want to call her and talk about everything. I want to have lunch/dinner with her. Nancy was the best friend anyone could ever have. She was kind, thoughtful, funny, always smiling and thinking of ways to make ordinary days seem special for every day was special to Nancy. My life will never be the same without her.
She understood me (we get each as she told me), she accepted me for who I am, she encouraged me to be myself and her encouraging words helped me to gain a little self-confidence. Her kind words got me thru some troubling times. Her sense of humor saved many a days. She was so generous with her time and always willing to help. Her hugs let you know she was truly glad to see you. My life will never be the same without her, but I'm glad I have so many wonderful memories. My friend, I miss you so much. There's a hugh void in my life and a hole in my heart. Tomorrow would have been your birthday. Happy Birthday in Heaven my sweet wonderful friend.

My condolences to all. I will always remember when Nancy came to visit me in the hospital in 2015, her tribute letter about my Dad (her Uncle Henry), her teaching me how to file my nails when I was nine years old :) I will so miss her coming "east" in May...love, diane

Tiffany and Tarah and Grandchildren,
Your Mother and Nana was one of a kind, and I know you all know that, but for me she was and always will be my special friend. She was always Heidi and I was Ho. We lived in the same complex and I heard a noise outside of her apartment and called her and wondered if she was okay. She said of course, and being two single women we always had a joke of her being Heidi and me being Ho. So thus Heidi and Ho got started. I will miss your terribly my dear dear friend. I cannot "Thank You" enough for washing all of my towels and saving my pictures from the flood. How carefully you laid out each picture in your garage for them to dry out and then you washed all of my towels from the kitchen. But first you helped me and held me when we walked into the apartment and I saw how I losted everything that was precious from my mother and grandmother and you just held me in your arms and let me cry. Thank you for doing that for me. Your were always so kind to all you met and you always gave encouragement for those that struggle with life. You even sent cards to my Tori when she was down and out and she sure thinks alot of you. My friend, I don't know what I am going to do without you, but I will keep looking out the front window and not the rear view mirror. Now you go and rest high on that mountain shountin' love for the Father and the Son. Your work here on earth is done and I know you have already seen our Father's face and walking the streets of Gold. Don't know if they serve Lobster up there but I am sure you can figure that one out. And oh yeah, I know you already have your room decorated just like you like it. I love you my friend and will miss you terribly. Look forward to crossing the Jordan soon and seeing you beautiful face. The is a hole in the world tonight....................

Nancy was an old soul, as soon as you met her you felt like you knew her for years. I loved how she embraced a positive spirit and always had a smile on her face. All I can say is God needed an Angel in heaven, and I am thankful that she no longer has any pain or anguish but is simply free to embrace heaven and it's wonders. God bless the family, I pray for your comfort through this, your strength to overcome your grief and an overwhelming outpour of love from your family and friends during your time of need. God Bless.

My thoughts and prayers are with Tiffany and Tara. Your momma was one of a kind and I will always remember her in the stands at football, volleyball and basketball cheering on her amazing grandchildren. God bless y'all. Hugs. ❤️❤️❤️❤️
