I'm so very sorry to hear of Nancy's passing...words cannot express what I feel. I was good friends with Nancy back in the late 70's,80's. Nancy, and Janelle (Sherva) Skillrud and I were quite a trio back in the day! Nancy also came out to visit me when I moved to Tucson,AZ, and I will always treasure the memories of that visit. She was a sweet, quiet spirit, but there was a force within her as well! Her love of horses and good times could tell you instantly what kind of person she was. I saw her in Northwood a few years back. She, Nellie and I had a good visit. I will dearly miss her, even tho distance tends to let too much time go by. She was a sweet soul, and I will never forget her, ever. Peace and comfort to you all!

I am so sorry for your loss...since mom called and told me that Nancy was in the hospital I have had so many fun memories go through my mind--swimming, horseback-riding, and best of all, being invited each year to watch Cinderella in color and having supper with your family. I treasure those memories and will forever think of Nancy as a classmate and friend.

My deepest sympathys go out to the family and friends of Nancy Thompson. I was a classmate of hers from Northwood's Class of 74. For whatever reason, God called her home, it's hard for us here on earth to undertand, but her pain is gone and may she rest in peace.
