Betsey, Edmond & family ~

There are no words to ever express my heartfelt sympathy in Nancy’s passing. Having been next door neighbors for over 40 years, there is just no way to list the many wonderful memories of Nancy & Joe that I will cherish forever ! Nancy & Joe were like grandparents to my children Will & Courtney, and although we left Aulander we never lost touch. I just can’t imagine them not being in Aulander to drop in for a visit.

May Gods Peace be with you sweet Nancy and know you will always be in my heart. Rest well and free of the pain and suffering, your battle is done and you are now in Gods loving care and a new Angel in Heaven !!

Love You Always ~
