    I will miss you cousin. Even though we never lived close, you and I spoke many times over the phone and laughed about many things. I will always remember you and never forget you. Thanks for being there, Nancy

    So sorry for the passing of Nancy. Nancy was my best friend, always there for me. She was a little mother hen, always worried about my health, always doing every thing she could to help. We shared church, holidays, cook outs, family gatherings and just shared time together. There was nothing we did not know about each other. We talked every single day. I miss her so much already, my heart is broken. Till I see you again sweet Nancy. Love You.
