Aunt Nan, Aunt Julie and my mother in law Susy taught me how to “mangia”. Every holiday and event was full of laughs over how much food everyone brought over. We never had just one appetizer or dessert. All three sisters would bring 2 or more desserts (at least) so everyone at the event could have a personal pie or two and we’d still have plenty of left overs. They filled us with love as they filled our bellies. One of my favorite memories with Aunt Nan was at the beach in Cape May. I confided in her that I was experiencing a lot of anxiety and she shared how her faith and emotional freedom technique (EFT), also known as “tapping”, helped her release anxiety and manage negative emotions. She offered to pull our beach chairs off to the side of the group so we could do a tapping meditation together. It was such a beautiful and unique experience that made me feel so close to her. I immediately started incorporating this practice into my life and I’d always thank her for introducing me to this technique whenever we reconnected. I’ll never forget the holidays we spent together or laughing hysterically as we’d play charades. I’m grateful for our trip to Lake Jocassee and spending this last Christmas together in SC. Aunt nan was a beautiful human being that I’ll always admire and miss dearly. We love you tons Aunt Nan, Uncle Jim & Kate. I’m so thankful we became family.

Jim and Katey I am so sorry for your loss. My cousin Nancy was the best. We had such great times when we were kids. Her memory is a cherished one. She will live forever in my heart ❤️

Jim, So sorry to hear about Nancy. I am trying to remember if we ever met. I don’t think we did. If consultation is to be found for you and your children it is simply that, being the woman of God that Nancy was, she is surely with Him now. One of my favorite New Testament verses is Revelation 21:4. God Bless you and cyber hugs.

So sorry on the loss of this wonderful woman. I was close friends with Nancy's mom Grace & sister Susan. I got to know Nancy through them, hanging out at the pool. She was an amazing, smart and talented woman, devoted to her daughter. She is with Jesus and at peace. See you one day, Nancy! Joyce and Donald Huff
