    Nancy’s daughters and family, My sincere condolences to you all. I was saddened to hear of her passing. I knew Nancy from North School through Chelmsford High School and we lived on the same street. Our daughters were also friends at the same schools and neighborhood. May your many happy memories help you through this dark time.
