Nancy was a very special lady. We met Nan through our love of the American Saddlebreds. We shared the love of one horse in particular, Calloway's Will Oblige. Although we eventually moved in different directions, we kept in touch. Nancy will be so very missed by all who knew her and loved her. And, I know, I will miss our conversations and texts at the Holidays. She is reunited now with Dick and her many beloved Saddlebreds. RIP Nancy. You are a beautiful soul.
