Nancy and my mother Joyce Clark were best friends in high school, and for their entire life remained close. I remember going to the farm and the girls showing me their calves. Fast forward to a few years back, when Mom, Irene, and I were visiting PA. Nancy drove us out to Frenchtown where our family had many members buried at a church there. We had such good times, talking and sharing so much. She was a wonderful person, and I feel lucky to have known her! Many prayers to all her family, Love Doreta Clark Isaacks

Tom, I dont don’t know you, but I greatly value your words. I knew Nancy when she was a little girl (the age of my sisters). At that time (before WWII) her father and my father were business partners. But, apart from group meetings a couple times later on, I was unable to stay in touch during my years in Africa. Thank you for your report.
