  1. So sorry for the loss of your mother. Aunt Nancy was a hoot to be around. I loved her spirit. Back in April we were able to sit down with her. She told us all about when she was little and how life was. I will charish the memory forever. She will be missed. Love you Aunt Nancy. I can see you dancing in heaven with all your love ones you haven’t seen in a long time.

  2. I feel blessed I was in town last week and was able to spend some time with you. I will always have fond memories of my Aunt Nancy. Thank you so much for being a part of my life.

  3. I was reading the U.P. Catholic Paper and read that Nancy had passed away. I am so sorry for your loss. I am your dad, Guy’s, first cousin. Phillip and my dad Romeo were brothers. I am the one who has been working on the Perron family book for years. I have always meant to go visit your mom to get information on Guy and her and you kids for the book, and I never did get around to it. I always kept in touch with your mom at Christmas time through a card and letter. I will miss her dearly. I will keep you in my prayers. Love Christine
