    Nancy was the most humble, loving woman I have ever known. With all her illnesses and struggles in life, she never complained and always gave 100% of herself to others. She loved the Red Sox! I was going to put her RED SOX shirt on her for eternity, but I know she would be much happier in her lovely blue dress. “Blue for the Virgin Mary” is what she would say is her favorite color. People overlook the blessed people like Nancy, but they are the souls that God puts here on earth to serve Him in a very special way. He has called her home and hopefully she will be at the peace she so well deserves. God Bless you Nancy on your journey home. You were my friend and most of all my sister….love you, Dolores

    St. Peter has a welcome wagon and breakfast tray of goodies waiting for you, Nancy! We will sorely miss you here, but we have no doubt you’re enjoying a beautiful rest, for a beautiful spirit. I feel privileged to have known you!
    Much love,
