I've Known Nancy since I married Steve 49 years ago.  I met her on our way back from our Honeymoon at the cape and she has been an inspiration for me ever since.  Nancy was very creative in all mediums, cooking, decorating, gardening and many more.  When you became her friend you were a friend for life.  We really got to know each other better when she started coming down to Safety Harbor Florida.  We played golf, did antique shopping, went to Disney and sometimes just walks together.  I will miss my mentor and friend very much and many more people will miss her talents.

My cousin Nancy was a large part of my growing-up years, as we all lived in the same neighborhood, and spent lots of time together.   We had to keep in touch by e-mail when she moved to New Hampshire, but still had great affection for each other.   I am greatly saddened by her loss, and send my sincere sympathy to her family.
