Sorry for the delay or I would have attended the memorial service last week. I work at Gardner Denver. Trudy hired me, but also knew Nancy and very fond of both Trudy and Nancy. I heard a lot about Trudy's family over the years. Knew Judy and she included me in some gatherings for Trudy when she was at Good Sam. Also remember Roberta and the buffet off 24th & Broadway. I am sorry for you losses... Pam (Terwelp) Laaker
I'm smiling as I write this, remembering lots of laughs and lots of fun over the years with you, Nancy.
So sorry for your loss. Nancy was always so much fun, especially when I taught her first shar pei to open the door to get outside & run around or take of down the street.
May Nancy Rest in Peace - Love Morgan and Zeynep Ganz
