    Nancy Hammock was one of the sweetest people I have ever known. She always made my day by saying something that made you feel great. I know she suffered many health battles, but she always focused on how you were doing and not her. I remember her parents fondly as members of Ash Camp, and I know a great reunion is going on in heaven.

    Unfortunately I just found out about Nancy’s death. She was such a strong woman. I too have fond memories of her from the days we lived beside her in Keysville. She was a wonderful lady.
