"We have several great memories of Nancy. She was the first person we trusted to care for our babies as young parents. They loved to go to ?Curt and Nancy?s house?. Our short vacation at Okoboji during the Iowa games was so fun. Always lots of good food, card playing and laughs. I know there was a very happy reunion in heaven for you. ??"
