Some people are special angels sent into your life to care for you. Nancy was our angel. We had just moved to the Lancaster area. We were broke. We drove a clunker. We had just started new jobs with a new company. We couldn’t afford to NOT get to work. She instinctively knew this. She had barely met us and offered the use of her brand new car until we could get our clunker putting along again. She knew that we were far away from our families and opened her heart and home to us. She incorporated us into her beautiful family.
I can’t get past a holiday without warm memories of good times spent with her. She made an event of everything everyday! Everything she did was an expression of pure love and joy. When you were in her presence, you felt special.
She gave me these plates one day just because I admired them. She loved the plates, but she loved me more. Knowing this makes it difficult to let go of these plates.
“Just for today be humble.”
I am grateful that Nancy walked with me in this life. Her physical existence was cut far too short by ovarian cancer. Her love and generosity live on in all who she touched and will remain unforgettable.
