I'd like the memory of me
to be a happy one.
I'd like to leave an afterglow
of smiles when life is done.
I'd like to leave an echo
whispering softly down the ways.
Of happy times and laughing times
and bright and sunny days.

I'd like the tears of those who grieve,
to dry before the sun
 of happy memories that I leave
 when life is done.

Nancy received many beautiful arrangements of flowers. The family thanks everyone.

10/5/2011 A lovely service, then a 16 car procession to Wintergreen Gorge Cemetery

Then we gathered at the Glenwood United Methodist Church for a lovely luncheon and socializing in memory of Nancy
    Nancy's favorite song "I've got to be me"
Its hard to write how I feel. Nancy and my mom were best friends. All my life Nancy and Judy were a part of my life.
I used to go to their house after school when I went to Burton because my mom would be at work.
I enjoyed holidays with them and they were involved in my children's lives as well.
I know that Nancy is with my mom and dad now, and she is without pain. I know that God will help Judy during this time and I pray that the family finds peace.
I have prepared a place at Life Ever After for Nancy. Rest in peace Nancy, Say hi to my mom and dad for me.

Mary and I went to the cemetery and replaced the flowers. I noticed Judy's headstone there. Its beautiful.
But I said to Nancy, just because she's next to you, don't mean she has to join you anytime soon. John and Mim agreed.

I finally made it over to Judy's new place.  Its nice.  Pictures on the wall in the same place as the house. She seems to be happy there.  We talked for over two hours. She's on the top floor and the view is of the football field. Not her favorite view. But its cozy.

Remember our loved ones this year.

Stopped by the cemetery today to get a picture of the wreath Olive put on Nancy's grave.
Merry Christmas Nancy.


Hey Nancy,

Was up seeing Judy the other day and she gave me some of your stuffed animals. I gave them to Lei Ann for the kids, but I kept this little cutie. Her tag said her name was Sasha, but I renamed her Nan and she rides with me in the van. She'll be my companion on my way to Arizona. Miss ya Nan

I was so sorry to hear of Nancy's passing. I have so many fond memories of you and your sister, John and Mim, from my childhood.
Haven't seen any of you in many years, but my Mom Dorothy Freeman Carbaugh used to update me periodically on your family.
Know that my heart is with you during this time.

Nancy thru my eyes
childhood memories of a beautiful, friendly woman with a wonderful smile;
she smelled exotic and alluring, inspiring dreams of a glamorous grown-up world.
memories of Nancy when I bought Shalimar as a young woman.
walking along. hints of vanilla, begamot, exotic scent -- memories of Nancy always.
