Living next door to Joe and Nancy for years, we were able to get to know them both quite well. We've missed Joe since his passing, but Nancy's loss will be more greatly felt. She was such a warm-hearted, amazing woman. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Maureen and Joe and the rest of the family. Your mother was one of a kind. She will be missed terribly.
