  • Dear Nancy’s family, It was so heartbreaking to hear about Nancy…I have so many beautiful memories of her and her sisters and friends. I’m Darlene’s sister Carol,, and thanks to my sister Darlene she shared Nancy and all her friends with me and my sister Noreen. I can remember the days they used to come to my house and we’d sing
    to all the latest songs and dance the night away. The last time Nancy came to Florida it was like no time passed by. That’s how close we felt to Nancy…a beautiful, kind and loving person who would do anything for her family and friends. I’m sure she was like that with all her patients and colleagues too. As I write this I feel so sad for her sisters, nephews and family…and also her close friends..she will certainly be missed by them. She’ll always be remembered as a bright shiny star. My sympathy, prayers and love to all, Carol xoxo
