Nancy Diane Hoffman

d. 2006

at 50 years old


Nancy had a mastectomy at the tender age of 32 and was cancer free for fourteen years. It returned with a vengeance…She continued on like the brave little thing she was…cheering me up when I was sad because of what she was going through…Nancy left this scarf at our home the last time she and her husband stayed for a few days. I said, "Don't worry, honey, I'll bring it when we come to see you." Two of her sisters, her Dad and I would all be there on her birthday. She died the day before we arrived.
