Be assured of prayer and remembrance in the Eucharist as you grieve the loss of Nancy. Your aunt/great aunt has been faithful to her God and now reaps the reward of her good life. She has been welcomed into the Kingdom by the risen Christ, Mary and all the angels and saints. May she rest in the peace of Jesus.

Nancy loved being a part of the IHM Sister-Associate Relationship. Her remarkable life enriched the lives of many of us who cherished her friendship. May she live eternally in God's Light. I will miss her.
