Jim, Dawn, Neil, and all the grandchildren -- we have wonderful and fond memories of you and Nancy -- church, camping, an infamous canoe ride and playing softball! It was great to see you, Jim, a couple of years ago, and we were so sorry to hear about Nancy's failing health. You are ever in our thoughts and prayers. Much love from Dwight and Sharon Blackstock.

Nancy you have passed on to an even better place. You will still be watching over your family but now from a distance. Help them to just remember all the good and fun times you all had together. God bless them all. Kathy (Muldoon) Bruns

So sorry to hear Nancy past away. Saw the two of you at our class reunion. She still had that sweet smile I remember from years ago. I'm sure she will be missed greatly by you, family members and friends. I know it's been years since i've seen Nancy, but I miss her already. Strange how some of the people you shared your youth with, no matter how many years pass or miles come between, you can still bring back fond memories of them. Nancy was that kind of person for many, I'm sure.

Aunt Nancy always had a smile and a laugh that added energy to the room. Her love for her family and pride in her children surrounded her and those around her. She always had us "eat a piece" of cake for her when it was one of our birthdays. Her spirit was always with us as we celebrated, and she shared a birthday with Jake. We will keep her in our hearts forever and love her always. Chris, Dave, Jake and Alivia Bergman (Niece)

Dear Jim, Dawn, Neil, and families, I'm sending you love across the miles from Seattle. It seems like another lifetime ago that our lives were intertwined. Every memory of dear Nancy, for me, involves a smile and a giggle from her. She was a lovely woman inside and out. I am asking God to wrap you all in His faithful love and to comfort you with cherished memories you hold dear. Thank you again, Jim, for attending Ron's WY service in July, '18. With love, Merry Elkin.

Jim, you and Nancy always made me smile. The kindness and love you two shared for each other and family was an inspiration to me. The loss of a spouse and mother is difficult to handle. My love and prayers are with you all. Im so glad I was able to meet you and your family. All my love Anita Bolt
