To Nancy

My sister Jennifer's mother-in-law, Nancy, passed away this morning. It was rather sudden, as she went to the hospital this past Tuesday and didn't even think she needed to be there, only to pass away 5 days later.

Nancy was 76 years old and was preceded in death by her husband nearly 17 years ago, two infant children, two adult daughters and one adult son who just passed away in February, 2009.

Nancy was a sweet, easy going lady and will be dearly missed by her five remaining children and her many grandchildren. My thoughts and prayers are with my brother-in-law Tom and his entire family. May your tears of today be replaced with a smile when you look back on all of the special memories with your Mom.

  1. Valerie,
    Thank you for the remembering Nancy and writing about her passing and saying kind words. We are all doing well, but as holidays approach, I suspect it will be difficult for us, especially Tom. She was a part of my life for 21 years. Nancy was really a neat woman and we all loved her very much. I'm happy she can be reunited with her husband 'Captain Tim'.
