Nancy was so much a part of all the guys lives from the Wednesday Night Merchantmens League in the 70's and 80's. To this day, I often think of the Friday night's Fran Lewandowski, Bill Cooke and me would stop in and end the week with Nancy. My sincere condolences, thoughts and prayers to all of you at this most difficult time.

I am so saddened to hear of Nancy’s passing but take solace to know that she has finally been reunited with her beloved Don who was everything to her. Nancy was an amazing person and a great friend who will forever hold a special place in my heart. Nancy stood for me as my Maid of honor at my wedding and I spent countless nights over the year's sitting and talking with her in the lounge at Blue Hen where she bartended. Nancy was a very big part of what made Blue Hen Lanes the special place it that it was. There is no doubt she was loved and will be missed by all of us who had the privilege and honor to consider her a wonderful and dear friend.
