I'm so sad just finding this out. Nancy cared for my oldest son from 4 months old until he was 5 years old and went to kindergarten. My son Matthew Yates is now 27. Nancy was a wonderful and loving lady. I have fond memories of her.

Ron, I am so sorry to read about the passing of your mother. I remember when we worked together, may many years ago, how much you talked about her, actually both she and your dad. I know you will miss her greatly. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this time. Juanita.. Grbo NC.
