Dear Nancy,

The sparkling dance of your eyes and laughter made the world a brighter place. The sun shines a bit dimmer now and stars pale in the night sky.

May you find your peace - you are dearly missed and loved by many.

Nancy, you were the best sister anyone could have hoped for. You were always there. Even now you are my big sister and I know you care. You listened to all the stupid. terrible movies I loved. You helped when I was down. You always, always loved us all. There is a huge hole where you used to be which will always be there. I love you sis.
