I am so sorry to hear of Nancy's passing.Nothing can really be said to make this a better circumstance. But with all of issues she was fighting and the pain and suffering, she truly is in a better place. I think you gave her all the care and attention that you could. If i can be of any comfort at any time and point, please do not hesitate to reach out to me at any time. Thoughts and prayers, Paul

With My deepest condolences George. I only met Nancy maybe half a dozen times but she always had a smile on her and a kind word to say, and with some of the stories George has told I knew her enough to say she had a kind and gentle heart and a strong enough hand to fight what was ahead of her, and keep George in line. May God welcome her with open arms. God Bless.
