  2. I’ve known you all since I was a kid. I’m going to miss Nancy. I’m grateful that she played the piano at my wedding and my parents wedding.

  3. Ruth,
    Sorry for your loss. We often talked about your parents at the Post Office. Blessings on you and your family.

  4. I loved Nancy dearly. She was always willing to accompany me with her wonderful way of playing the piano. I always said she could make the piano “sing with joy!”
    Whenever we would meet while shopping, we would talk on forever. whether it was about her family, Carl, the boys, Ruth, friends around Hughesville, and other things.
    Nancy was so precious, and that smile!
    This year has been horribly damaging, and we have all lost touch. I am in shock, however I know the hope that Nancy had in knowing Jesus personally. Family, may our Heavenly Father comfort and sustain you in the days ahead. He is our ever-present help in time of need.
