I knew Nancy since I can remember. Her mom and mine were good friends from grade school through high school. Her brother, John, was also crazy about animals. The first time I ever tasted Philadelphia cream cheese was at her house for lunch when I was about 4. Thought it was the best thing in the world! Rest in peace, Nancy. You were a good hearted person.
