Nancy was so very dear to me. Always there with a warm hug and bright smile. How I will miss seeing her on Sunday mornings at Calvary Moravian. I know her family is blessed with lots of happy memories. May God comfort you and keep you in His loving care. Ed, you are in my heart and prayers.

I have so many cherished memories of Nancy that I will never forget. She always made me feel so welcome in her home and treated me as part of her family. The love you two shared was so special. I hope that time will bring you comfort. Love, April

I am so sorry to learn of the death of Nancy West Alford. She was a beloved classmate of mine at James A. Gray High School 1955-1959. I had a very good conversation with her on June 15, 2013 while gathering information for our upcoming 55 class reunion classmates informational booklet. Our prayers are with the family.
