I meet Nancy 10yrs. ago at the Sheatz’s Reunion. I went with my friend Janine so I didn’t know very many people. Everyone was saying hi and talking and I was sitting at a table by myself. Nancy came up to me and introduced herself and sat down. We talked for quite awhile and then it was time to say the blessing and eat. That wonderful women touched my heart that day. She could see that I didn’t know many people so she came over and sat down with me. Nancy made me feel so welcome and when she got up to leave she gave me a hug and said it was so nice to meet you and I do hope you will come back next year.Nancy was one of the most loving and sincere women I have ever meet. I was so blesse...d to have meet her and to be able to call her my friend. God bless you Nancy you are home now and we will all see you again.Read more
