Memorials to Voices of Hope in Nancy’s memory.


  1. I’m so sorry for your loss. This scripture gives me comfort in distressing times like this. It’s found at Revelation 21:4 “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”

    May your God bring you comfort in this very difficult time.

  2. Nancy. – my homie, my friend, you will be missed. Resolute and brave you tackled your disease with grace and courage. I’ll forever miss your laugh and your wicked humour. Definitely one of a kind you were!
    Condolences to your loving family from all of us in Seattle, Deborah, Mario, Hannah, Paul, and Thomas.
    RIP till we meet again.

  3. “The pain now, was the joy, then…that’s the deal.” C.S. Lewis

    To your family, be like her and your lives will be full.
