My deepest sympathy, love, and prayers on the loss of Nancy. Carrie, my late husband, Jim Braida, was a first cousin of your Mom. I am shocked and devastated by her passing. May she now rest in God's Eternal Peace. Please let me know when you are coming to Illinois. Love, Maizie Braida

Nancy and her husband Bob, along with their daughter Carrie and son-night-law Todd, were very good friends in Fort Myers Florida. I miss Nancy and Bob and will always cherish the memories of the good time that we had together.
