  1. My deepest sympathy to Mr. Smith and your family. I am so very sorry that Nancy is gone. She was the nicest patient and was always so pleasant. She kept such a positive outlook until the end. I’m so glad that I was able to get to know her a little. She was a wonderful and caring person. She was always asking how I was doing not matter what she was going through. My heart goes out to you, and I’m sending you a hug.

  2. Our hearts are saddened by Nancy Smith’s passing, and we extend our respect and sympathies to her devoted husband Robert, and their families. When my late husband & I moved next door, he said to “ask Nancy” to get her viewpoint on any local issues since we both respected her intelligence, and her keen, calm mind in understanding situations with great clarity. Her warmth and pleasant personality will be deeply mourned by all who knew her in her many roles from devoted wife, to loving grandmother, mother-in-law and friend. It was a privilege to have known her. May her immortal soul be blessed and at peace.

  3. My sincere condolences to Robert, Dale and Margie. She was always pleasant even right up to the end. She will be missed
