    Dear family of Nancy,

    I was one of the fortunate young nurses to work with Nancy. She shared her love of nursing, her faith and family with me. When I came in to the church at St. Michael’s she was there. She attended my wedding as I did hers. May she Rest In Peace in the hands of our loving Father,
    Peace and prayers, hold your memories in your hearts forever.
