“I'm so very sorry to hear about the passing of Nancy. My dad was a sales consultant at Morton's for 20 some years and I always looked forward to going to see Dad at work because "Nano" would always have some treats for us. Now I work at Morton Buildings as a sales consultant and I always see her name and hand writing going through all the older files. She was the kindest lady one could ever meet. She's now back with Gerald and with God. Rest easy Nano!!!! ”
