    Mrs. Nancy was one of the sweetest ladies. I enjoyed every time I got to talk with her and during our personal visits to discuss the yard needs. Please rest knowing she is reunited with Dr. Wakefield and they are holding hands walking the streets of gold. She and he will definitely be missed.
    Prayers for her family!
