The world has lost a 'bright light,' but as this 'Earth angel' returns home ..., the sky is bluer, the stars shine brighter, the birds sing louder. I had the pleasure of knowing Nancy for 20 years, through our work with reiki. Nancy always put others first. She was epitome of selflessness, loving kindness, compassion, warmth and grace. Nancy's big heart was matched by her big smile. Happiness reflected in her eyes. Nancy, you are loved, missed and remembered forever. Your laughter continues to ring in our ears. You leave a wonderful legacy in your beautiful children and grandchildren, who share your wonderful traits. Bless you all.

I have often thought of the Christmas gatherings at Janise's, and the girls weekend in NH with the gang. You will be greatly missed. Thank you for being a memorable part of my life. Linda Williams.
