"We are so deeply sorry to hear of Aunt Nancy's passing.
Even though we only saw her at Family gatherings, she was so sweet and lovely. We immediately accepted her as Family.
We all loved her and will miss her dearly. Our deepest condolences to Uncle Jack and her Family - Richard and Robin Orifice"

"I had the delight to know Nancy from the perspective of a child, and later as an adult. As a child entering her home, I felt her immediate acceptance and support. Nancy understood the privacy children need to play and laugh together in creative worlds no longer inhabited by adults, and respected that boundary. Meeting her as an adult, I was again welcomed and supported by an older version of the same slight, graceful beauty with the twinkle in her eye. I realized immediately that one of Nancy's many great gifts was that she had always known how to travel between those worlds, and delighted in doing so with her grandchildren. I am so thankful to have known her. To know her really was to love her."

"Nancy was a great woman who I got to love for 45 years.  She laughed easily, handled 10 kids on her honeymoon easily and never blinked at the revolving door of kids coming and going.

She was a wonderful cook who could look at 3 ingredients and turn them into a delicious meal.  She loved a game of cribbage, Scrabble and always worked the New York Times crossword puzzle.

She showed her kids how to grow old gracefully. She didn't create the quote, but the first time I heard it was from Nancy: Growing old isn't for sissies.  Boy, is that true.

Nancy will always be present in our hearts and memories.

"Dear Sheryl, Heidi, Mindy, and Kirtley,
I can tune my internal audio to listen to Nancy's catching laughter. I can tune my internal video to watch Nancy at different times in her life. I can feel her unlimited love around me. She never left. She is forever."

"Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.

mary elizabeth frye - 1932"
