Deepest sympathy

I am so very sorry to hear of Nancy's passing. I met Nancy through her long arm quilting business and instantly connected with her. I only had the privilege of having her complete a few of my quilts. Nancy custom quilted a quilt for our first grand daughter and it is truly remarkable. A true keepsake. Nancy was a remarkable, kind, loving, giving and spiritual person. Her passing truly leaves a void. My deepest condolences to all her family.
Sincere Condolences
