It has been many months since your sweet Nancy passed...I have missed her ever so much. She was such a wonderful person and friend. Many, many people loved Nancy, I am one of them. She always called me at just the right moment and just made the best day even better. It was all her excitement about life, her fun doing everything, her joy from having Maddie, her love for her precious Denice, and having a husband who loved her so much, as she loved him. Oh, how I miss of the best friends one could ever have. What a love!! My sister, Jan, passed only two days before Nancy, so as I grieved for my sister & learned of Nancy, I realized it was like grieving for two sisters. I say to you, Nancy's family, a candle is lit for all the brightness your Nancy, your Mother, your Nana and my friend brought to others. My love & God's Blessings to you, Judy Crosby

Our thoughts are with you and your family during this most sad time in your life. She was a lovely, and always friendly lady.One of my special memories of MTC was that little tin box of homemade fudge you handed out every Christmas from your happy kitchen. Lynn and I bought a "summer place" in Farr West and will be returning to Hurricane when it turns too cold up here. Here or there, please know we are thinking of you.Marilyn Banta

Dear Jim and family,I am so very sorry for your loss. I never really knew Nancy as we were more than a decade apart in age and lived in different states. However, my mother (Aunt Babe) remembers all of the grandchildren well and over the last few days we have talked about Uncle Joe's family several times. She is almost 91 years old now and unable to travel, but I know she wishes that she could be there to share your grief. We are praying for you all that God will comfort you in the way that only He can. With deepest sympathy,Ann Pfeifer

So sorry for your loss. Gosh, I have tons of memories with Nancy. Our mornings coffee after the kids went to school, cooking and baking together, taking ceramics, making Christmas ornaments, going to Ohio to pick strawberries, shopping and just talking. One event I really remember, and Jim I am sure you will remember also, is the time Nancy and I went shopping and the parking garage closed before we left and we could not get our car out so we had to catch a ride home with our neighbor. Although we lived miles apart, Nancy was always in my heart and thoughts. Wish I could be there with you, but sending love, prayers and hugs. God bless you all. Love you guys.Maude SweeneySt. Albans, WV

What I remember the most about Nancy is her cooking. She was always cooking and boy could she cook. I can also remember her smile and laughter. I have not got to see my friends much since they moved to Utah, but I can still see that smile and hear that laughter. Such a great personality. And, I can't forgot her dog "smokey". Smokey was always by her side. Nancy took care of everyone! So sorry for your loss. Wish I can be there with you all. Sending you hugs, prayers and love your way. God Bless,Kellie CyrusYour WV Friend for many, many years!!Love you guys!

Denise,I do not know if you remember me or not. We went to St. Albans Junior High School together. I was so sorry to hear of your mother's passing. I have thought of you often throughout the years, but never knew how to contact you. I would love to touch base with you and keep in touch.Lisa Handley Ritter

Dear Jim and Family,My condolences are with you and your family. Nancy was a terrific woman. I have fond memories of golfing with she and other MTC wives. I will think of her tomorrow as I tee off playing golf in Charleston with our mutual friend. Cookie sends her love and says "you'll hear from her soon!" We are shocked and saddened to hear this news.Best,Kim

I will never forget how Nancy helped me when I first moved to Utah in 1992. She actually unpacked my kitchen for me at my condo. I spent many days with her and Jim traveling to Wendover for a little fun. Thanks for all the memories. Jim, I love you man. God Bless.
