I was completely shocked when I opened the OFC site today. Nancy was (incredible that I must say "was") soo lovely, it´s such a pity that I never had the chance to met her in person. At least she played the last years one of my former best Ovation guitars in "the frozen tundra of Minnesota".Thanks Beal for the song, makes my smile.

Many thanks to Beal for making such a fantastic tribute video with Nancy's walnut gem. Unlike so many others here, I only had the privilege of knowing her for a few years. We connected instantly and our email and phone chat exchanges were always a treat. Those exchanges became shorter and less frequent in 2019, so this news is not a shock in that sense, but rather a relief in that she is no longer in battle. We often enjoyed trading stories of life progression from youth to adulthood and beyond, and the attached photo is one of the last things I ever sent to her in that regard. She liked it very much. I think it is also probably quite representative for many of us others as well, so I will leave you here with that as I did with her. Thank you, Nancy, for so many kind and wonderful engagements and memories.

Very sad indeed. I never had the pleasure of meeting her in person but I have talked with her through here and facebook. She was a good hearted person we were fortunate to have in our lives. Rest in peace Nancy, enjoy playing with our fallen brothers who preceeded you.

Nancy asked me several times about using walnut, and I did my best to tell her its strengths and weakness. She took it and ran, along with others' advice, and built a personal statement with it. She and I had several conversations as well about the calendars, and she almost single-handedly kept me doing them for a couple of years with her enthusiasm.

I had no idea she was ill, but was becoming increasingly worried about her this year.

I will surely miss her joyous, and I mean absolutely JOYOUS, attitude around here!

Rest in peace Nancy. You touched others' lives.

I’ll miss her comments about spitting Mountain Dew all over her keyboard after reading the banter that sometimes goes on here. We talked at length on occasion about amps.

So sad. I never knew her but her wonderful nature shone through in her many posts.

Beautiful tributes here. Loved the song, Beal.

God's Angels are all gone too soon. Nancy was a treasure for sure. "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called children of God."

Rereading all these posts today with a smile and tear. Remembering the goodness we lost. New Year's resolution, carry on the Nancy spirit.

Nancy was the best.. We would chat for hours in FB messenger and on the FB Ovation pages. I coveted her USA Flag Ovation CL.. She would joke about leaving it to me in her will.. Well one day, she sent me a text message to tell me she found one for me to buy on Reverb.com. I bought it that same night. She and myself were both thrilled.
She would refer to me as her big brother, and I would call her little sis... She will live on in my heart and will always be with me when I play the Flag O.. Her sister got in touch with me the morning after she passed.. The sorrow I felt was intense, but felt relief knowing she was free of the pain that horrible disease was causing...
RIP Nancy... You are missed everyday..
