Nancy was a good friend of mine for many years. We were in a club together with about 6-8 other girls and we would take turns meeting at each of our homes. She was always happy and a fun person to be around. We even visited with her parents a couple of times after Nancy's death.

Nancy, you were a very good friend to me; you're family and my Family were all good friends. It seems like only yesterday I would always see you, and your mother taking walks around the neighborhood together or shopping in the local Courtesy Food Store. You always had a beautiful smile on your face that made your cheeks glow. You were such a happy young girl. You had a wonderful family that adored you. Your mom would always say, “my Nancy,” she was so proud of you. And of course you were Daddy's little girl. Everytime I would see your dad around the neighborhood, we always stopped to talk about you.
I remember the last time I spoke to you, you were telling me about all the big plan's your mom and dad were making for your 8th grade graduation party, renting a hall, etc. You had so many friend's that you needed a hall for all of us. You were so happy and excited, and I was so happy and excited for you. You were such a joy to every one you came in contact with.
When God took you away, He took the joy out of our neighborhood and, I would think, that is because He wanted you to share your joy in heaven, with all the other angels.
I will never forget you. Rest in Peace my little Angel Friend.

Hi, Nancy, I miss you very much. I tell stories to my grandchildren about you, Cookie and me. I am 62 now and I miss you so much -- I will always miss you. -Mary Ann.

I met Nancy Pilas in fifth grade when I transferred to OLA from a public school. We became good friends. We were in a small club together with a few other friends. The last time I talked with her was after lunch on December 1st. I said I would see her after class that day. But unfortunately I never did. Some of us girls would visit Mr. and Mrs Pilas after her death. They were never the same. What a loss. I named my son Daniel after Nancy's brother as a remembrance of her family.
