Nancy was a wonderful friend and neighbor to my parents, Bob and Joan Green, for as long as I can remember. She kept in frequent contact when Bob became ill. She was present and support when he passed on and remained a concerned friend for my mother always calling if two weeks went by and she hadn't seen Joan at church on Sunday morning. God Bless her soul. May she rest in peace.

Tuesday evenings at Greens Fruit Farms isn't going to be the same anymore, without Nancy making her weekly trips for her peaches and nectarines. We will definitely miss her smile.
