I was so lucky to have such a special aunt in my life. Seeing her cope with difficulties and loss with such grace, faith and love taught me so much. She was always there with a kind or encouraging word and endless patience and love. She offered support, and ear or a shoulder to anyone who needed it. I’m praying for her children and grandchildren as they continue their journey through life. God blessed all of us with an angle on earth. Rest In Peace, Aunt Nancy and enjoy your reunions in Heaven.
