Sharon and Glen - I was so sorry to read of your mom's passing. She was such a fun lady and she and your dad were the best of hosts. It was always a treat to be included in one of the "Nelson" events held at their home through our "Kiddoo" connection. I know this is a difficult time for you and your families - you will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Sharon & Glen,
So sorry to learn of the passing of your Mom. She was such a sweet lady. I have many fond memories of her and your dad and the antics they pulled with my mom and dad. May they all be back together having a great time.

It is difficult for us to think of your Mom without thinking of the beautiful song titled "Nancy (with the laughing face)" written in 1942 and made famous by the recording of Frank Sinatra.

Your Mom was one of those rare individuals (so very much like your Dad) that immediately brought joy and laughter to those around her. Her spirit remains by the kindness she shared and the love she brought into the lives of so very many.

While distance precludes us from extending our respects to you in person please know that you and your families are in our thoughts and prayers that you might feel God's presence and find peace and comfort, strength and courage.

Sorry to hear of your mother's passing, I would come to the visitation except for the fact that we are on the East Coast at this time. Your Dad and Mom were always special people.
