  1. It saddens me so that your Mom has passed away but I know she is better off. She was always such a good friend to me-I will miss her dearly. I am so sorry that Alex & Ryan really didn\’t get to know her & share in her humor. I JUST wonder what she and Carolyn are doing right now! Love, Susan

  2. Sorry to hear of Nancy’s passing. She’s at peace now. Played golf many times with Nancy at Timberlin and Patton Brook. We will miss her.
