Nancy lived on the street that I live on and we met as I would walk my dog. She was very friendly and we would always speak for several minutes. I got to know her. She would usually be working on her yard. I miss not seeing her there lately. My condolences to her children and grandchildren that she spoke so fondly of.

Nancy was a wonderful woman and a fantastic next-door neighbor here on Peak Seven in Breckenridge. She was funny and very tolerant of the noise my boys would make with their dirt bikes. She is with Russ now, another wonderful person and the love of her life! Our family will miss you when we visit Breckenridge, but we know you will be smiling over us from Heaven! Bob and Family, you did a great job taking care of her!
