Hi Mom! I never got to meet you but Chris and I talk about you a lot! You would be so proud of the man he has become. He really wishes he would have done things differently with you. He wishes you were still here so he could tell you that. He says you would've truly loved me. He thinks we would have been the best of friends and shopped a lot! He misses you and feels regret although may not admit it. I'm sure he would put a smile on your face. He keeps me laughing a lot. He tells me stories about you and often tells me things you would do or liked. Heaven got you to early I would've loved for you to be my mom! We love you!

Oh Mom!!!! Please be there to greet Kim! She is gone and.. I am so lost without you... She stepped into your shoes and now I feel so alone. Why?!?! She fought so long and so hard. It's all so unfair... Please let her know I love her and keep her close to you.... I miss you both so much. You both are in my thoughts and prayers daily,,,

Happy Birthday Mom. Watched a new Rocky movie the other night and thought about you Always thought it was funny how you would root for Rocky to win on the movies, even though you had seen them 100 times you would still yet at the TV. You would have liked this one I think. Love ya

Happy Birthday, Mom, on what would have been your 70th. Have been thinking about my memories of you when I was in elementary school, starting when "Bump" was born! You were amazing! I remember you being my Brownie troop leader and making Shrinky-Dinks in the oven; really enjoying making money off these giant tissue paper flowers you learned how to make and taught me; teaching me how to cook my first meal ever: tuna casserole; all while listening to Andy Williams, or Tammy Wynette, or Freddie Fender, etc. Such excellent memories back then. Love you and miss that mom.

I dread this day every year. I can walk around the rest of the year and pretend that you are still here, just away...somewhere on vacation with no phone...poor reception up there in the mountains. But then January 3 comes along, and it all comes flooding back. The phone call, the mad rush to the airport across the state, the frantic cab ride to the hospital, the shock of seeing you lying in ICU...I'll never forget it. I am so grateful for the few days with you in the hospital. But what I would give to hear you speak to me again, to tell me you love me, that it's going to be okay. I miss you, mom...more than you will ever know. I hope we get to see each other again in heaven. Love always.

I am sorry to hear of Nancy's passing! I worked with Nancy in Deming New Mexico. She was a great inspiration to me. She was the DON at Mimbres Memorial Nursing Home. She encouraged me to take my first DON position. I admired her for going into business for herself. My son and I visited her and Gale at their home. My son and I was talking about her today and the raccoon she use to have. Googled her and found out this sad news. A wonderful lady!

Happy Birthday, Grandma. Life and family is so precious and I think about you often. I pray for the strength of my family and that through you I learn the value of family and keep them close. Thank you for looking down on us and taking care of everyone. With love- Meshelle your Bell.

Another birthday gone without you here. I have never been able to think about my own birthday without thinking of yours. Makes it difficult to want to celebrate. Wish I could sing to you again, mom. Love you.

Stayed busy yesterday to keep from dwelling on the fact that you aren't here. Miss you and love you.

Today is your birthday. You would have been 66 years old. It's the first time in my memory that I can't call you and sing happy birthday to you. Tonight in my prayers, I will sing to you and hope you can hear me. I love and miss you.

What we have once enjoyed we can never lose. All that we love deeply becomes a part of us. ~ Helen Keller.

You will always be with us, Nancy, and sadly missed.

You take your mom for granted. you think she will always be don't realize how the world changes when she is gone I drive to work and try to remember every childhood memory of her I try to keep her face in focus. What happens if I lose it? I didn't see her often but miss her deeply. She taught me alot. My life has become emptier without her. I love and miss her.Til we meet again

The bond between mother and daughter is one of the strongest you can find. It surpasses distance, disagreements, and even space and time. You left this earth much sooner than expected. I still need you, as being an adult is not something I have yet perfected. I will forever miss your voice and sage advice. But I trust your spirit will continue to guide me through this life. I love you, Mom
