Gary and Nancy dated for 51 years and their love is just as strong today as it was 51 years ago. Nancy's light and love shined through wherever she was and the special bond she shared with her granddaughters will never be forgotten.
There are few people in life and this world that have such a profound effect on so many and are able to touch their hearts and inspire them to be the best they can be. Nancy was one of those people. The lives she touched and impacted with her cheerful heart will forever find comfort in the memories of her kind spirit and life lessons she taught.
