    Although, I have not seen much of Nancy in past few years, prior we did spend a lot of time together, because of our daughters, being in the same schools, classes and Camp Fire group. During those years we got angry with those girls, but mostly we laughed watching them grow up and the silly things that they did or tried to do. Nancy and Walt were good people and were good parents and friends. I very much enjoyed visiting with both of them learning their history and background. It is with a heavy heart that I must now say good bye to Nancy, as I had to say good bye to Walt, not long ago. May God be with all of you – our prayers to your family and friends. Sarah and Jon Herman

    Nancy was a wonderful lady and I will miss her. She taught me much about both courage and the benefits of laughter. She loved all her family very much!
