I worked with Nancy years ago at Bluegrass. I knew her, her son Jim, and husband, Roger. Nancy was an incredible person, a strong advocate for individuals with disabilities, and a life-long vegetarian. I remember Nancy once telling me she "couldn't eat anything that had eyes." She will be missed.
I had the pleasure of working with Nancy at Horn and Associates. Her passion to help her clients and families is greatly admired. She will be missed.

So sorry for you loss. Nancy a I were good friends when we were younger. We even went to her Senior Prom together. Rest in peace.
So sorry for your loss Roger. Looks like you and Nancy had a full life that you can cherish forever. God Bless!
I am so sad to hear of Nancy's passing. It is so hard to lose a spouse no matter how long you have been together. It would seem that Nancy lived a full and caring life. .....bless you Roger.
