Dear Karsten, Christopher, and family.

On behalf of the Sparling family I would like to offer and express our sincere prayers and condolences over the loss of Nancy. We all grew up together living across the street from Nancy, Bill and Doug. I had an opportunity to speak with Nancy on our lunchtime walks on Preston street just before she retired. She was so excited. We laughed, I asked her what she was going to do in her retirement, and she said paint! and read. We spoke about family, her health. She had such a strong positive outlook on life. Nancy, and that infectious hardy laugh, so well respected and liked. Gone to soon. Fly with the 👼 angels Nancy. Karsten and Christopher, May God surround you both at this sad time with love and prayers.
