There are some people who come into your life and it seems as if you have known them all of it. Nancy was close to this sort of person. She was a member of my tai chi class and always had a smile and something good, or funny to say. This past Saturday at tai chi Hubby said Nancy was in perfect form and had everyone laughing, especially him. It was shock to discover her passing.

The platitudes of “She will be greatly missed” or “She was so very special” or “Nancy was one of a kind” do not come anywhere near the truth.

Like me she loved animals, especially dogs. The last time I was to talk with her she had her new puppy at tai chi class. Most everyone else did tai chi while we discussed dogs, training, and life in general. It was a late summer morning and her smile was almost as bright as the sunshine.

At the visitation last night there was a wonderful collection of people from so many different groups a few of which included tai chi, belly dancing, Kentucky Horse Park, Shriner’s Hospital, Central Baptist Hospital, the dog park, and so many other places.

Nancy was my friend and I am going to miss her. We are all going to miss her.
