Will never forget the all night bible studies and pray time at Nancy's, and her commitment to the Lord. Nancy's always made you feel like she was so glad to see you. Never will forget her making us huge wonderful meatballs and bringing them to us.
Billy Bob, and your family, so sorry for your time of separation, till you see her again..
