The "other" Nancy in my mom's life, Nancy Marcus was a constant presence in my mother's life. Not a day went by when my mother didn't say "Nancy Marcus said this" or "Nancy recommended this move, or this book, or this restaurant." Nancy's constant and faithful friendship with Ethel over all these years has been a true blessing. During the most recent years, she continued to talk to my mom regularly even though they couldn't get together in person and my mom's hearing and memory and other issues made communication difficult. I spent some time with Nancy last year as she transitioned out of her condo - her upbeat and positive attitude at each step in the process, in spite of the stress of moving, was wonderful. Nancy will truly be missed by my mother, and our whole family will miss hearing about Nancy's "favorite things."
