I am so heartbroken to hear of Nancy's sudden death. She wax my dearest and closet friend when we were in junior high and until she moved away in the summer following our sophomore year. We had so much fun after school and in the summer playing softball and thinking up mischief. We would put hydrogen peroxide on our hair and lay out in her backyard after swimming in her pool. Instead of petoxiding our hair, it turned green! I am so thankful we found each other in 2011 after so many decades of not knowing where or how was was. She was so blessed to find a fabulous guy to spend her life with and who loved her so dearly. Dear Louie and her family will forever be in my prayers. Rest In Peace, sweet Nancy, and may we reunite once again.
