Nancy and I were first cousins. We were about the same age and grew up with our families spending much time together. Over time we went our separate ways with my wife and I moving to California. She reconnected again with Louise through Facebook. We were saddened to hear of her passing and Louise and I extend our sincerest sympathy to Kip and family.

Our sympathy to Kip and the Lamb family on the passing of Nancy. She was our neighbor and friend. She was very friendly and generous and had a great smile. We’ll miss her and the kindness she showed us.
Peace and love to the whole family.
