A Sad Note From Nancy

Nancy Gibson Tomlinson sent us this note:

"This e-mail is to let you know I have been very ill for the past six weeks. My doctors have confirmed that I am in the final stage of the disease (idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis - for which there is no cure). I was given 3-5 years to live 8 years ago when first diagnosed with this animal.

Unfortunately I have reached the end of the line. It has been a great ride with a wonderful husband, family and great friends.

I want to thank all of you for your e-mails, prayers and cards. I no longer have the strength to maintain my e-mails on a daily basis so I will ask that you restrict your e-mails to personal.

Much love to all of you - Nancy"

(What a trooper she is! What an inspiration she's been to all of us who have loved her all these years!
She and her loving husband drove all the way from Florida in a car full of oxygen tanks to be at our 55th Reunion!
In the not too distant future, we'll all be at a great reunion.....but there won't be any oxygen tanks....or walkers...or hearing aids, etc. -Ed)
