Dear Steven, Kim, Paul, and Eleanor,
I am so sorry to hear of your loss and our loss. Nancy will be missed by many who knew and loved her. She demonstrate such grace and fortitude throughout her life, despite the challenges thrown in her path. Please remember this little poem: "Those we love don't go away. They walk beside us every day. Unseen, unheard, but always near; still loved, still missed, and very dear."
With sorrow and much love,
Your cousin Arlene <3
