    We were so sad to hear of Nancy’s passing. We knew John and Nancy from Trap Shooting, and treasured our friendship with them both.

    Nancy was a special person. So sweet and kind. We will miss her.

    So glad that we were able to spend a pre Thanksgiving dinner with Nancy and family last year. The laughs and great time that we had will never be forgotten. Nancy meant so much to Miriam, she was almost like a second mother to her. She will be missed.

    Our thoughts are with Merrill, Ray, John and the rest of the family. I am so glad we got to know Nancy and will never forget her sharing her bed with Piper. She will be missed by all her 2 and 4 legged friends! Love to you all.

    Your mother was so very kind. As well as your Father. When I was 4 years old we lived 3 houses away on Moundview Dr
    My Dad Bob Coleman worked with your Dad. My little sister died of Leukemia at almost 3 years old.
    I lost half of my childhood.
    Your parents gave me a red male Pomeranian. It was the best gift to this day
    I am 64 and still smile when I remember the joy and life
    that sweet dog gave me.
    God Bless you and know your Mother is remembered.
