    Nancy and i were classmates at TVHS from 7th grade through graduation. We were in the band together and shared many, many happy hours which left memories so very dear to my heart. She was a kind, loving and great friend. We kept in touch via e-mails for many, many years and I spent many a night, as she did, with each other in those years of friendship. A great lady, mother and a great friend. Wish I could be in attendance in August but age and distance will keep me in Arizona. Live on Nancy with your heavenly famiiy and friends ...see you on the other side.
