  1. I would like to express my sincere sympathy to Gary Lou and the family. I can only imagine the reunion going on in Heaven. I am sure that Rose Marie was there waiting for her and they won’t let anyone get a word in edgewise. Nancy, you can now rest and enjoy your renewed soul. Love you always, Trish Scrofne Anderson

  2. Nancy was certainly the ultimate fan. Bulldog Nation was far better with her rooting them on. She will be greatly missed by all but especially Bulldog fans.
