Most of us knew Nancy well. We spent many Saturdays in her home watching The Monkeys (before high school!). I know -- most wouldn't own up to that, but we really had a good time ... karoke as we know it didn't exist, but we could have invented it. Hey, Nance ... miss ya.

I can still remember Nancy's great slumber parties. I remember she was crazy about the Partridge Family!! She had a party for me before we moved and Billy gave me a ride home. He told me he was sorry we were moving...I thought I'd faint....he was soooo cute!!! And we used to go watch her Uncle Sonny wrestle! Still think of you alot, Nancy.

Never forget the call that came to my Wichita home, when Kathy and Teresa called me to tell me about Nancy's accident. How awful... and at the time, I was dealing with my own hell associated with alcoholism. I remember not being able to go up for the funeral and just praying the Rosary, crying for Nancy and her family...

I remember Nancy with that that great grin of hers, braces and all. Remember when the braces came off, her excitement over the yellow PInto car! Remember that? In her car,she was a fierce driver. Of course her laugh that wound up in a snort had us tickled - remember that? My POMMIE memories are plenty & Nancy & Vickie were terrific co-captains. Nancy yearbook work or newspaper work- impressive. Nancy cared.

You will be remembered always, Nancy.

I had the privilege of working with Nancy once on the carnival and she was very fun and helpful.I remember when I heard of the accident.I was in shock and my heart was sorrowed like it had been pierced.If you didn't have the opportunity to know her you missed out on a great chance to know a caring person.I Never knew her as a lot of you did,but what I did know was she really did care for more of us than you'll ever know. You are very missed Nancy.
