I am so sorry to hear of your mom's passing. I will always remember her smile when I would go to the dentist as a kid. She was very good at getting us kids to relax before going in to the chair for a cleaning. Please know that we are praying for your family during this very difficult time. God bless.

We will miss seeing Nancy walk past the house in the morning and the evening. She was always pleasant and friendly. I wished she could have seen her house complete with new shutters and new doors, but I know where she is she can look down and see how lovely it looks. She was a delight to work for... and will be remembered with great fondness.
