    Dear Kris and Family,

    So sorry to hear of Nancy’s death. I saw the notice in the paper this morning. Called Pat and told her but unfortunately neither one of us will be able to attend the services. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Love, Betty

    It’s been more than 5 years now and yet still feels like yesterday. They may have gone but they will not be forgotten.
