Nancy Shay

Yesterday we attended a memorial service for Rob's sister, Nancy, who passed away in February. Nancy was 13 years older than Rob. I got to know her in the early years of Rob and Betsey's marriage, and enjoyed visiting her in Southbury, CT several times with Shirley. But Ellen never met her. The service was at the UCC church in Southbury, where Nancy was quite active, including being a member of the bell choir, which played during the service. Afterward, there was a reception at the church, followed by supper in Waterbury. Rob saw a lot of cousins he had not seen for decades. It was wonderful to see him and Katie - we got caught up a bit on their lives. Katie will be working this summer in NYC!
