I am so sorry to hear about Nancy. I had no idea until today, but my heart and prayers are with you all. She was such a wonderful person and Heaven is surely brighter with her there. May God hold you all close during this time of trial. She was such a special person and was so gracious and loving to me and Glenn ALWAYS.
