Major Norman and family;
It was a privilege to provide pastoral care and support to Nancy for a period of time while she at Eventide. I remember her prayers/singing and many visits with her. She was supported by her husband and family and she will be missed. Her faithfulness to God is an example for us all. May God give you peace and comfort knowing she is with her Heavenly Father.
