Condolence: To the Comfort/Belonzi Families

My deepest condolences to all of you on the loss of such a vibrant woman, friend, sister, wife, mother daughter, aunt and co worker to many. I met Nancy many many years ago when we were in our late teens working for the State. Many fond memories I will cherish from the long ago days. To the family, I pray that the Lord will sustain you always and provide you peace with the beautiful memories that you all have made through all the years.

Condolence: To the family, thinking of you, wishing you hope in the midst of sorrow and comfort in the midst of your pain. I have known Nancy since we were 12. We shared so many wonderfully happy times together and I will always have these memories to treasure. We also shared some painfully sorrowful times as well. She was my rock during these times in my life. She was the mother hen who always took care of me and protected me. One of her favorite verses from Rosalita and our motto when we were young and carefree was “We’re gonna play some pool, skip some school, act real cool, stay out all night, it’s gonna feel alright.” I will miss her but she will forever have a place in my heart. With that I would like to end with a verse from what I know was her favorite song of all time, Thunder Road by Bruce Springsteen. Driving around New Jersey in her little yellow “bug” we would sing at the top of our lungs, with the windows rolled down, “Hey, what else can we do now? Except roll down the window and let the wind blow back your hair. Well, the nights busting open, these two lanes will take us anywhere. We got one last chance to make it real, to trade in these wings on some wheels. Climb in back, heaven’s waiting on down the tracks.” To Nancy – Wait for me in that rocking chair on the porch like we always said we would do when we got old and gray. I will meet up with you on the other side down the road.

Condolence: I’m so very sorry for your loss. Nancy and I both were Friends of Bill, and we leaned on each other for support. I remember her giving me rides after my surgery and helping me with some tricky paperwork. She was loved By many and always tried to do the next right thing. I pray that she finds peace and that your family can find closure. Our journeys are never easy and often changing. Nothing is an absolute. All that matters is the love you give and the love you receive. I told her once, “Nancy’, I know you’d rather have 15 minutes of spectacular than a lifetime of nothing special “. Well she certainly had a lifetime of spectaculars. Feel your tears, and let them flow and comfort you knowing you did everything you could and God has taken over the rest.
