    My condolences to the family. My prayers and thoughts are with you.
    My fondest memory of Aunt Nancy will always be about her telling me the story about when I was little every time I was saw her . She would ask me “Do you remember when you were little and would say …”Aunt Nancy do you want me to go to the store and buy you a Mountain Dew?” She spoke in a voice like I did as a child and made it so funny! She was much loved and will be missed!
