"Dear Alan, Deborah, James, James, Jessica, Donnie, Mary Ellen, TJ, Keira, Our deepest sympathy for the loss of your beautiful wife, mom and grandmother. Nancy worked with Joe for over thirty years. Her smile, warm personality and office skills were an asset. She was more than an employee but a friend who always had your back. She will be greatly missed. Love, Barbara & Joe Cohen was not just "

"Alan, Deborah and Don, and your beautiful families: I was so very sad to hear of your Nancy's passing. She and I first met when I worked for Dr. Payman and our friendship expanded over the years to include meeting at Snippers, meeting at Sam's Club (where our husbands got to know each other) an ultimately my husband and I going to many church dinners that Nancy organized. I will miss her smile and her laugh and her friendship. I am sorry we couldn't attend her service. God Bless you all. May your many memories bring you comfort. Sincerely, Lynn and Jim Mitchell"
