    I will miss my sister Nancy’s quirky sense of humor, the way she loved to shock people and how she was able to do most anything she set her mind to do. I’ll always remember the week we spent together exploring the UK – almost 45 years ago.

    I will miss her easy going personality, she could and did everything she put her mind to.

  • I’m gonna miss my all time favorite aunt. I will miss her smile. And the things she said that made me laugh. And all the good things she made for our family get togethers.
