I was sorry to read of Nancy's death. It has been many years since we followed our girls around to soccer tournaments, but I always enjoyed visiting with Nancy at the games. My sympathy in your loss.

To Nancy's family, you have my deepest condolences. Nancy gave me a chance to volunteer with her in the IVT, and when she was ready to retire, she asked me to take care of her "baby". It's an honor I've been blessed with for nearly 20 years. She changed my life. Volunteering with her, I've met so many people who have become friends and family to me. People I would never have met otherwise. She was very well-respected by so many people around the world, and she will be missed by all of us. With sympathy, Michel Bryson

My deepest condolences for Nancy's family. I met Nancy first time in EAA International Visitors Tent in 1985 or 1986. I was at EAA convention and heard announcements to welcome the EAA Visitors in different languages. I didn't hear my language, Indonesia. I stopped by at the IVT and met Nancy and Barbro and asked why there's no Indonesian language. A year after, I came back to Oshkosh and volunteered at IVT. I've been volunteering since. Shellbe missed. So sorry for your lost.
