  2. Words cannot describe what a wonderful young women Nancy was. She truly loved life, her family, friends, and pets. She loved God and believed in heaven. She prayed she would go there when her time on this earth was up. She wasn't ready to go yet, but she knew, that due to her health issues, her time left probably wouldn't be very long. She never complained. She liked to laugh and have fun. She just kept doing what she could to take care of everyone who needed her help. She loved her family so much. Now she has moved on. She had a heavy cross to bare her whole life. She embraced it, took it and ran with it until she was tired. Jesus saw this and said to her "well done "sis". I have prepared a place for you in heaven. Nancy has moved on now. She is with Dad, Tim, Jeremy, and the rest of her beloved family who passed on before her. Don't cry for Nancy, rejoice, celebrate her life, have a party. That's what she wants us to do. She told me so. God speed Nancy. We all love you. We're gonna miss you. Life is short so, we will be with you again soon. Love ya. Your big brother Rick

  3. Dear Merry family,
    I was sadden when I heard of Nancy's passing. She was such a carrying person to others. And never felt sorry for herself with all her own health problems. When I think of our childhood together I picture Nancy out feeding the chikens and playing with her dogs. I remember a conversation we once shared together she said "We should always make the best out of each day and try to bring happyness to others." She always showed that it was true.
    I know that she's up in heaven because she always loved God in her family above other things. I wish I could be there this saturday but I have been sick with the flu all week. I'll be praying with you all saturday morning.
    Love Always
    Bobby Hall

  5. Nancy and I grew up together, had a lot of great times on the farm laughing and joking till late hours even though we had school the next day. She always had kind words for everyone I'm glad I had the chance to have great memories that I will have in my heart forever! I love and will miss her sweet smile. ....Wendy Webster harris
