So sorry to hear of the passing of Nancy.  I hold such fond memories of her.  As a child, I can remember she and Harvey coming to the house and playing the card game Rook with my parents.  They had such a good time!  After my mother passed, she helped my dad out in so many ways.  She was such a kind, special lady.
