Your families are in my thoughts and prayers. I worked with Nancy and she was a beautiful person. She loved halloween and dressing as Mrs. Claus. She not only did it for our guys, but other group homes as well. Halloween was her favorite holiday. She decorated the group home, her home and loved the whole theme.
God bless you all
Nancy always seemed to be laughing, even when she spoke about her recent accident. She had such an upbeat personality, and was so warm and caring. One of the few people whom I could read with…she would pull out her book and we read side by side, companionably. She was so proud of her children and grandchildren. I will miss our morning conversations. Be peaceful, Nancy.
Nancy was a sweet lady and will be missed at her T.O.P.S program by her T.O.P.S sister Ellie
