    Kitty, I just found out about Nancy. I regret I am not on Facebook and had to be notified by one of my classmates. My heart is broken, and I cried because it had been such a joyous occasion reuniting with you both at out reunion. Nancy was my only friend who had my similar interests during our early years…being outside and playing sports! When your family stopped coming to FL, I stopped sports.
    I heard from Nancy a couple of times since our reunion, and I truly felt another meeting would grace our calendars.
    My love to you all. Katie

    Nancy was such a dear friend. I do not have words to express how much I will miss her. I am so sorry for your loss. She spoke about her boys and her grand kids often.

    Words do an injustice in explaining how much I will miss Nancy. She will remain very alive in my memories and admiration. I have felt blessed to have known her. Please accept my sincere condolences.

    I have known Nancy for “years” as a client through Slimmer Image, both in Topeka and Overland Park. Nancy became a dear friend to me over the years, and in that regard, I can say that I truly “loved” Nancy very much as a friend. Nancy has always also been a powerful inspiration to me in life – her entrepreuerial spirit, independence, good business sense, and strove drive to succeed … which she surely did. My soul was deeply wounded to hear of her loss, and I write this w/ tears. Yet I also know that Nancy’s faith was strong – and that she is most definitely w/ the Lord. To her family – though I did not know you, I am holding you up in prayer during this time. May the love & peace of God be with you. – Jacque Mankin, Topeka, KS.

    Dear Christi, Lance, Chaun, Angie, Kitty, Bob, kids and all of Nancy’s family. We were so sad to hear of Nancy’s passing and pray for God to give you strength to carry you through this difficult time. Nancy was truly a beautiful woman, both inside and out. I couldn’t help but hear her infectious laugh when I saw her photo just now. May your love for her keep her memory alive until you meet again in a place of perfect peace. God bless you all. Sincerely, Erin, Shawn, Molly, Bridget and Colleen Robertson
