Nancy was a warm, happy, positive and loving woman. I have known her all of my life. Nancy is my cousin. She was a junior bridesmaid in my parents wedding. Nancy was my baby sitter. As a child, I saw from my mother and grandparents how much they loved Nancy, as I did. With my family moving to Mobile and Nancy in Atlanta we kept in touch with Nancy making visits to see us. Over the last several years we shared our lung problems, exchanged phone calls, emails and photos. We reminisced about family and days gone by. I know how much the choir members and music meant to her. Nancy always mentioned that. I will remember Nancy as happy and joyous, loving and caring, positive and active. Nancy was a treasure.

Nance was a very special friend and loved by so many. She will be missed by all of us. Dear friends for 27 years and countless memories that I can reflect on daily. Heaven gained a Special Angel and like Fran said a phenomenal Choir Director. Nance was amazing when directing the choir. Nance loved music and it showed. Thank you for being one of my favorite friends. I love you and will miss you very much.
