Together, they raised five children while serving in the Air Force, traveling to Europe, Japan and the United States before settling in Texas. She attended Irwin Road Baptist Church.
    Nancy was more exceptional in every way than mere words can describe. Our hearts have a hole, and our ears will forever feel silent. We were truly privileged to have her.
