Don and I want you to know we are thinking about you in this time of sorrow. Nancy was a lot of fun and she loved each and every one of you. She was just the right amount of ornery, loving and honesty.

So sorry to learn of her passing, but ya know, she'll get God straightened out in no time.

She was loved.

Dear family,
     How sad to see that Nancy has passed. I remember her well when I was a child. Nancy and my Mom Phyllis were very close at one time. Even though I haven't seen her or any of you in the past several years we are still family. Now your Mom can meet up with the rest of our family including my Mom who passed two years ago in Heaven...Thinking of all of you! Your cousin, Pam

My deepest sympathies to you all. It is very difficult when someone we love so dearly is called home We will miss her spirit and spark for living life to its fullest. She blessed so many and asked for so little in return and I am thankful she was such a big part of my life then and now. I thank her for all the words of encouragement, the raised eyebrows to keep us... in line and the many "it'll be alright's". We love and miss her so. She will always be in our hearts and memories.

Kevin, Nancy and Michaela Buyer

To my friend Vern, Although we did not know your
mother, we were blessed by her to give us such a
nice son whom we are now able to call a friend.
Vicki and I have both lost our parents and know
some of the lost feeling afterward, but as time goes by you will remember more and mourn less. We
now realize that they are the last generation between them and our time. We are thinking of you and hope to see you soon.

Your Higginbotham family has alway been such good neighbors in the east end of town by keeping such a neat home and surroundings.  While I didn't know your mother, I have had the pleasure of knowing many of you as students through the years.  I know you will miss her greatly.  Please accept my sympathy.
