    Loretta, Hillis and the rest of the Dunn family — Having been greatly comforted and honored to have seen and talked with Nancy only a few weeks ago when she and Loretta attended my dad’s memorial service, I only wish I could return the favor for you and her this week. That smile of hers seemed to be ever-present and I know she will be missed. My heart is saddened by your loss and I send you my deepest sympathy. May the fond memories last forever…
