  • May God Bless and console dear brother Anthony , so sorry you have to deal with this sorrow… much of your time has been in the quiet loneliness at this time in a nursing home. Our gratitude to those caring for you and to Larry for his thoughtful care in Nancy’s last moments and arrangements. Nancy loved all the children in her life, from children to grandchildren…they always lifted her spirits. We had many happy times…and we will remember the laughter and the tears. May God be with us as we walk through this loss to lift and encourage those around us .

  • Dear Tony and family, although it’s been years since we’ve seen each other, I’ve not forgotten our friendship and the fact you were in our wedding. So sorry to hear of Nancy’s passing. We know she no longer has to suffer the pain of her illness. I believe that she is with the Lord and her son. Also, I believe she is speaking with Denny Meyers, my husband who went home so long ago. Christ’s peace be with you all as you enter this healing journey of grief. Take it one day at a time. God will lead you where you need to be. I’ve thought of you often over the years. I pass by your old place on Piper Rd. when I go to the church I serve on Bowman St. Rd. My heartfelt sympathy to you all. You will see her again, whole, healthy, and happy. Take care of yourself.

    Pastor Carol A, (Meyers) Kilgore
