"For my special Aunt Nancy.  I remember when I was young and you lived down the street from Grandma and Bill.  I was barely out of the car and I was running down the street to see Uncle Kenny, Aunt Nancy, Susie, Jimmy and Billy. I was greeted with the biggest smile from Aunt Nancy and she always made me feel real special and very welcome.  In fact no matter where you lived, everyone always felt welcome in your home.   Love to you, Uncle Kenny, Jimmy, Susie, John and family."

"So many fun and happy memories that I will always hold in my heart of you my Aunt Nancy. I think I wore your record out when I use to babysit for Susie, Jimmy& Billy.  "If I Had A Hammer," kept us singing & dancing and we played it over and over again. I think you laughed as hard as uncle Kenny and I when he wore a hole in his pants doing the twist with me. We sure had fun. I was glad you moved to Arizona to be near your was right where you had to be. I know you will have that fun, beautiful laughter and smile with you always.
Thinking of my far away Uncle and cousins and sending my thoughts & prayers to all of you."

"To our Aunt Nancy.  I remember her as always fun, happy and the life of the party or family gathering.  You could always hear her voice above the crowd, usually laughing.  I was one of the lucky older cousins that got to babysit for Susie, Jimmy and Billy.  The best part was that I got to spend the night!  My only regret is that you moved away from Michigan so long ago.  I remember in the Fisher family we had the in-laws and the out-laws.  Aunt Nancy was an out-law!  So Aunt Nancy enjoy your time in heaven with Uncle Willie, Aunt Pic, Aunt Mickey, Uncle Don, Uncle Jim, Donnie Clark, Colleen Gerighty (you two behave yourselves), Jeff Haney and of course our beloved Billy.  May you rest in peace, free of pain and free of burdon.  You will be missed.  With Love, Gary and Diane (Terry) Skinner"

"I was so sad to hear of Nancy's passing. Nancy and I have known each other since the 9th grade at East. We shared many fun events with our girlfriends at JHS. Nancy and I were cheerleaders @ JHS together. She really enjoyed all the sporting events. Especially the basketball games. The two of us cheered @ MSU and our team won the State Championship. Of course, Kenny was playing on the team!! I heard from Nancy last summer. I had sent her pictures of our classmates taken @ a mini. JHS reunion. She was so excited to see her old friends.I was grateful to be her friend and enjoy her friendship. Nancy will be missed by all!!!!! RIP, Mary Roberts Kellogg JHS 1956"

""Señoritas and our Cantina dresses"
Wasting away again in Rocky point Mexico, I wish that was a theme song for my grandma and grandpa, as that was their love of travel kicking back on the beach having happy hour and enjoying their family as we dance around on the beach in the campground without a care in the world. Grandma was quite wonderful at making everyone of her grandkids feel special.A great memory I have is when she took Kelly and I to the fishmarket in Mexico and let us pick out canteen addresses. It was a great way for us to dance on the dance floor while our grandparents or parents have happy hour. Grandma would always go to great lengths to make sure we looked her best. She picked out the most frilly beautiful girly dresses and let us Dance about the dance floor while she laughed and enjoyed the site of such a great memory she created. She was really good at making Kelly and I feel so special with it with a sweet little baby like Katie in the picture."

"A great memory I have of my grandma, would have to be titled as "she nailed it"
About 25 years ago, my grandma entered cosmetology school in becoming a nail technician. I was so proud of her as she was so tickled to start doing nail art and working on people and chatting with them all day. She was always so good at striking up conversations with a complete stranger and knowing their life story within 20 minutes. It was out in Mesa where she took this class there was about 30 people in there, she used me a six-year-old pretty much that age, as her nail model.I felt so special as she put Jewels all over my fingernails and sat there giggling and laughing with all of the friends that she made. I was so honored to be her granddaughter and thought she was just the coolest person in the world. Later that night my sister Kelly and I stayed over at my grandma and grandpa's house as it was her favorite thing to do with having a baby sister like Katie my parents spent time with her while Kelly and I stayed over there at grandma and grandpa, the fun grandparents.grandma took out her nail kit and proceeded to give grandpa a manicure. Kelly and I laughed so freaking hard we pretty much Peed our pants. She continued on giving him acrylic nails and grandpa just sat there smiling as he knew it was the funniest night we've had. She did a great job and I have to applaud her she was quite the nail technician. All in all whatever she put her mind to and followed through with it, she she truly nailed it."

"One of the thousand lessons I have learned from my grandma I would love to share with all of you. She was a very wise woman no doubt about that when my sister Kelly and I were about six years old seven years old, we were quite curious about her cigarettes that she will leave on the patio table, while her and grandpa were kicking back with some beers one night, Kelly and I decided to sneak one of her cigarette we went and hid in the palm trees in the backyard out in their  Mesa house and try to light one up. Nothing gets by grandma and she knew it was so silent that we were up to no good. The lessons she taught us was she told us to sit there and smoke the rest of the cigarette and after one puff Kelly and I were throwing up and we learned our lesson to never touch another cigarette again. I love her wise Ways and miss every bit that she taught us. In fact her giggle and chuckle as we sat there learning her lesson, is still vivid to me now. I miss her laugh and her chuckle. I think we all do.That's just one of the many lessons. We all need a laugh every once in a while. She was very good at laughing."

"Nancy was a special person to me and i am sure to many others! The  mold was broken when she was born, a one of a kind person! After i married Lynn Frame is when i really got to know Nancy and Ken fisher. They were always hosting family and friend get togethers, you could say that people gravitated around them. I have recently seen pictures of Nancy with her grand kids, it amazed me how often she was with her grandkids when they were little, it showed the love they had for each other. Those Vanyo girls and Jim Fisher kids have alot of street smarts, a strong back bone along with love for one and other, i believe Nancy had some to do with that. I always called her aunt and she called me, well i can't say that but we always had alot of fun around each other. Aunt thank you for all the good times and for being my friend! you will always be loved and missed!!!"

Do Again, he tucked her in and said he was going to turn off lights. . .
Aunt asked him to kiss her, he did
She said, Do again . . . he did
She said, Do again . . . he did
She said, Do again . . . he did
She then said O.K. Love you
Mike and I loved and will miss Aunt so much but, Do again?  This was a message to all of us to always care, love and live like Aunt and Uncle did.

Do Again is a household, daily KISS in our lives thanks to Aunt and Uncle.  I love all the Fisher family, sorry for the tears, glad for the memories!!!!!!!!!!
