I will always remember Aunt Nancy as a woman with a kind heart, an unbridled spirit, living life with energy, without fear and a quick wit. Her heart was full of kindness and a sweet smile. I will forever remember has as a beautiful blonde in my eyes while growing up riding horses and listening to music. I look forward to meeting her again on the other side. Peace.

Joel, I am sorry for your loss.

Though I never knew Nancy, from her obituary I am confident I would have liked her.
