To all the family, please know you have been in our prayers the last few days, and will continue to be in the days ahead. Even though we didn't know Nancy as well as we would have liked, I know she and your Dad raised loving, caring adults. I know she is proud of all of you, the grandchildren and great-grandchildren as well.

May God Bless and Comfort you in the days ahead.

I want to express my sympathy to all the Watts family, but especially Debbie, Luann, Jean, Christine,Roger and Doug. Nancy was always such a sweet cousin to me and my parents. I remember lots of good times from years past, even before some of you were even born. She was such a great Chtiistian mother and matriarch of your family and I know you will really miss her in the years to come. Thinking of you fondly, Pat

I do not know her personally, but I know her daughter Luann from work. She means a great deal to her, and it's that kind of care and compassion that comes over to me every time she would talk about her. That's true love. My thoughts and prayers are with the family during this tough time.
