    We are so sorry to hear of Nancy’s passing. The memory of her presence, her visits, her laughter at Pelican Point will live in our hearts always. She was a special lady, we enjoyed her company very much and always looked forward to her popping by. She used to drop by Stan & Yvonne’s home there and she and Dad would tease each other – we had some good times! We will miss her, and will remember her in our prayers.
    Blessings to all her family!
    Marc & Simone DeCnodder (and family)
