I remember his loss as an eleven year old. Nancy was in my brothers class in school. This was my first experience with an unexpected death of someone i knew the family. I still feel the loss i saw Nancy deal with. He would be proud of how sweet and kind Nancy was to everyone around her. He and his family were loved by those who knew them.
