      Curtis: Life seems to flash by and I’m always trying to catch up, but it sure was great to see your name here. I have great memories of you and Anna Mary – your time at Bethany in Chicago – and then from the less frequent visits between 1950 – 1970, when I was married to Nancy. While visiting with Dan and Kay over this last week-after-Christmas in Fairhope, AL, I had several chances to chat with Nancy. Of course our dialogue was somewhat limited due to her condition, but she told me she appreciated my visit. I’m sure you have had to slow down a bit, like all of us seniors, but it would be good to hear from you. I have heard nothing about your family for many years, except in one of Barbara’s emails on April 29, 2015 that Cindy lives in England. If you get this, then you will see our phone and address on my reply to Dr. Jack Forney. You, and all Nancy’s relatives, will be in our prayers for unlimited blessings.

    So many precious memories of good times shared. Rejoicing that Nancy is now singing and dancing in Heaven. Praying for the love and peace of the Lord to comfort her family and loved ones. Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints. (Psalm 116:15) My thoughts and prayers are with you. Judy

    Kay, Barbara, & Dan, I know Aunt Nancy will always be remembered in the hearts of her family and friends. She was always very special to me. Lin and I have fond memories of the last time we had dinner with her in Va. She fought a hard battle and now she is at peace. Our prayers are with you. Jack and Lin

      Jack: We met in 1950 following my marriage to Nancy. You and Judy were quite a bit younger, but I remember you well. Never met your Dad but always felt like I knew him because of your precious mother Mary. I have NEVER met any widow who loved her husband more than your mom – and I will never forget that. You were talking about Dental School back then. I have wonderful memories of great fellowship (and food) at the Forney home. Sure would love to get together and get caught up on you and yours. In my retirement I stay active driving vehicles in the eastern part of the US, and get to Manheim, PA periodically. My wife Irene and I live in the country near Lynchburg, VA. Our address is: 293 McMaster Road, Concord, VA 24538. Our phone: 434-993-9349. I don’t have your address or phone, but if you are interested, I’ll try at the first opportunity when in the area. Unfortunately, I never know more than the day before, where I am headed. Sure would be nice if it worked out to get together. May you be blessed!
