a message from Nancy

This is to all of you. It was found on Nancy's computer:

From Dark to Light

Today is a very special day
Not just for me but for all of my friends and family
It has been 5 years of success
Unfortunately, not all of it was filled with happiness.

There were days of darkness
And others filled with anger
Wondering why I was chosen
To be in this much danger.

I have cried and yelled and screamed
Wondering why God was doing this to me
What did I do, was I bad?
I was not sure and became very sad.

I was scared and felt helpless
Not many people my age had been through this
As I wondered how I was going to get by
I was blessed with angels who were always by my side.

As the days and months went on
I started getting strong
And as I learned to cope
I discovered the meaning of hope.

I am in a much better place today
Than I was 5 years ago
And I have my friends and family to thank for that
You are all my angels…and I just wanted you to know.
I love you all


  1. A beautiful ending.

    I am not sure if you remember me. I was in Nancy's class, and knew you too. I wanted to extend my condolences personally. I saw Nancy at the reunion, and was so glad she made it, knowing it took heroic efforts to get there.
    Regretably I was unable to get to the visiting hours or celebration. I know others in education who are familiar with Nancy and her work in educating both students and those involved with cancer causes. She never changed. Ebullient and involved to the end of her life. We should all take a page from her book!
    I wish you, your sisters and mother peace in times of family gatherings to come.
    Sincerely, Gail
