Nancy. It is difficult to believe that you are no longer with us. We shared so many good times in grade school, high school and college. You were a very special person. Always positive and cheerful.

Debi and I had the pleasure of living next to Stan and Nancy in Palm Desert for the last 6 winters. Nancy was a sweet, gentle classy lady, not to mention generous. We are going to miss her dearly. Our sincerest sympathies to the Hart and Svoboda families. We all lost a wonderful woman and great friend.
