    Dear Tom, Yvonne, Neil, Scott …..
    We know Nancy to be full of laughter, love and caring … with so much more to live for and so much more to give. As you face that long and lonely trek through the “valley of the shadow…” may you find comfort in signs of Nancy’s on-going presence in your life She ‘is’ still with you – a part of who your were, who you are, and who you will become. May there be moments of comfort in your sadness and times of peace in your days. Peace and Love.

    Nothing I write would be able to capture what Nancy meant to me. There are so many incomparable memories spanning 25 years of friendship. Neil and Yvonne, you raised such a beautiful, thoughtful and caring woman and I can only hope my daughters can be so lucky to have a friend in their life like Nancy. She is irreplaceable, and I too have a broken heart.

    Tom,Mr & Mrs. Naismith and Scott,
    Thinking of you all today, we know how hard this has been for her and all of you, and how hard today and the road ahead will be. Our hearts are very sad and will miss her so much,her hugs, her voice,her laughs and her beautiful smile. She was such a special person. Never thinking of what she was going through, but always making sure everyone else was good. That is why she was a nurse. Tom you were wonderful husband to Nancy, I know she always told me how lucky she was to have you in life. No words can say enough to all of you right now, but I know that trying to get through the day without tears is so hard but I am trying to remember all the great memories of you Joe(Nancy). I always had that nickname for Nancy. I hope Nancy you are in a better place now You are the wings beneath my wings Nancy. We love you and miss you more than words can say.
    Love Heather xoxo (best friend)

    I first remember Nancy from elementary school. She was a good, kind person who grew up to be a beautiful woman. I am very sorry for your loss, she was taken away far too soon.

    With sincere sympathy, Nikolai

    I played baseball on a team with Nancy in Winnipeg a little over 20 years ago. She was an awesome person who was such a joy to be around. I was so saddened to learn of her passing.
