Keith, Scott, Laurie, Mike, and Julie, I'm so sorry for your loss. Your mother was such a force and always worked so hard. She was a true matriarch. It is good to know that you were all by her side when she passed. Thinking of you and sending hugs and prayers. Moira

Nancy was the finest of women; actually among the finest of all people I've known. Strong, independent, wise, but still maintaining a childlike sense of humor. She had a unique giggle, only duplicated by her sisters. All of her extended family will miss her greatly.

Although I did not know her, Laurie, my friend, you have carried her care, love, and dedication forward... The is no “good time” to say “goodbye” to a loving parent; the memories all come forward and flood us at these moments...perhaps a sign we shall all meet again....Love to you all as you come together in her honor and carry her love with you into the next parts of your lives and honor her each day with your dedication to caring as she cared for the well-being of others. My Love to you, Jami
