I remember Nancy having a "pet racoon" and I thought that was pretty cool back in the day. She pierced my ears a long time ago and told me "it wont hurt" and it I will always remember her GREAT sense of humor. I remember visiting her and her showing me all of her Halloween costumes. She had a lot of those and ALOT of clothes... Always made me laugh
Hollie, Ronnie, Chubby..sorry for your loss. your mom was a great person but all of you already know that..

Mother, sister, aunt, and loving grandmother you've always been a fighter right up to your passing. You were beautiful in your own special way that many people saw. You always had a way with words and always stated your opinion whether anybody liked it or not. I love you in every single way forever and always rest in peace. Love Derric<3>
