The following paragraph is in Nancy’s own words; “Other than the birth of my sons, my proudest day was my son, Kevin’s, marriage to our daughter-in-law, Kimberly Ann Phinney. She has now become like our daughter and an integral part of our little family, and we all love her. Kaleigh, Kim’s daughter, is just as precious to us and sweet enough to eat. I love my boys dearly, but I do enjoy having two girls in the family to spoil again”.
