    In the short time I met Nancy, she was friendly to me. I am friends with her son Donald and his wife Ellie. I could see how giving she was, and how important family was to her. My prayers go out to the Engelmeiers, and to let them know she is in a better place and Gods hands are the best hands to hold.
