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 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.
