  • Dear Vetare Family:
    Dorothy and I were deeply saddened to learn of Nancy’s death. Please accept our deepest sympathy. She was a great lady, and we were blessed to know her during the 40+ years we were members of Grace Church. We regret that, living in Maine as we do, we are unable to attend the funeral. May God bless Nancy and all of you.

My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time because I know the two of you were such a cute and loving couple. Just hold on to the beautiful memories you had together.
