  • Condolence Entries for ChefNancy Part 1

    The following are entries from ChefNancy's obituary page. Her sister, Kathy, sent them to me to forward to everyone because the page has since expired. I told her I would post them here for everyone to read...for safe-keeping and prosperity. Fiona (I have to post them a two separate entries because there are too many of them.)
    From:mtapia from Davita

    You are missed.


    God bless to you and your family. I met Nancy on the Devita Forums and her knowledge about dialysis was very comforting to me. I am very sad to hear of this news. She gave me strength when I needed it most and I will miss her dearly. She truely was and still is an angel.
    From:George Bakley

    I'm George Bakley, better know as "Grilldog", I host a popular Public Access TV Show that is very popular around the world. Nancy and I became internet friends many years ago via publicity about my show. She was one of my biggest fans and critics! I loved it. I always sought out her advice and she would always be a true friend and direct me when I was out of line. I've made many posts about her and for her and we have bantered a lot. Dispite her illness she would come on line and send me unsolicited comments, just because she cared. She will always be in my heart as one of the great people in the world, I regret never having the opportunity to meet her. I heart goes out to her family, relatives and friends. Nancy will always live in my hear as a true friend.
    From:Linda Griffin

    I have known your sister only a little while, but she helped me calm down and not feel alone when I entered my plea on the Da Vita forum. She was right there to welome me and help me start the journey of CKD. If all of us miss her so very much, I know that your heart is breaking with her loss. Be proud of your sister, she has helped hundreds, maybe thousands of people all over the world with her kind, instructive words. From what I could see, she was always on hand to welome a new person and help them deal with their worries. I will dearly miss her. God bless you.
    From:Marilyn 1947
    Nancy, as a member and later a moderator of a kidney foruma, helped me through so many difficulties in the past three years it is so difficult to imagine her not being with us. I hope her fsmily knows just how much good she did for people she never met but felt as though they knew her as a close friend who never let them down.
    From:Fiona (FMBK)

    I am so sorry to hear about Nancy (ChefNancy.) She befriended me on the DaVita forum very soon after I was first diagnosed and ended up on dialysis a year ago. Her voice was one of comfort, wisdom and great caring. I listened to what she had to say with great interest and valued everything she said. In this new world of mine, one I had to quickly adapt to, ChefNancy was the voice of reason and experience. There was always a guarantee that what she had to say on any subject related to kidneys and dialysis, would be honest and informative. I was so shocked to hear she died. I will really miss her. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends during this difficult time.
    Fromee Dee from Kidney Fun

    My heart goes out to all of Nancy's family and friends. I knew Chef Nancy from Kidney fun. She was an amazing person for all that she did for so many people and just keeping up with one kidney site is hard for me and she not only touched people in so many other forums but she helped the friends around her and at church. I didn't know until I read her obit, that Nancy was so highly educated and did so much with her life. Even changing careers. She always was the most down to earth person and always ready to give advice to anyone in need. I am devestated that we have all lost such an incredible person who has touched and enriched so many lives. Nancy was loved and will be missed profoundly, but never forgotton.

    Chefnancy (as you were known on the kidney forum), I will miss you! Your wisdom and caring helped me in so many ways. You were always there, a rock, and I knew that I had a friend who understood kidney disease and it made me feel less alone. Your legacy is that you touched the lives of so many people and really made a difference in their lives - I know you made a difference in mine. My condolences to your family and friends.
    From:Helen (NelW per DaVita)

    (Chef)Nancy - your intelligent advice, kindness and inherent ability to give hope and love to the DaVita Forum members will be so missed. The amount of help you gave everyone is immeasurable and we will not forget you. You made a difference to real people and that is such a wonderful legacy to leave behind. Your personality shone through your postings and we all felt you were a good and trusted friend. May God keep you at peace and bless your family.
    From:Audrey (Telford UK)

    Nancy will be missed by so many of her so called "kidney friends" she was an inspiration to us all. She was my "secret santa Dec 08" I will treasure her wind chime she sent me.
    From:Phyllis (phyl1215)

    I will miss her daily posts and all the help she has given me with my coping with kidney disease. She will be greatly missed on our on-line groups. May she rest in peace. Prayers for her family and friends.

    From:Malibu from forum

    'chefnancy' was in inspiration to everyone on the forum. Without her help I would be lost today as how to deal with caring for my husband who has kidney disease. My condolences go out to her family. I wanted you to know that she helped many people who are sick.
    From:Wendy from Davita

    Chefnancy was a gift from God, she inspired us to strive to be and do the best we could, and still does. Her unconditional love will always be remembered.

    I am sorry for your loss of Nancy. I know that anyone who knew her will be hurt. I knew her from a kidney website. She was very helpful and kind. I will miss her very much. She was an inspiration to me.

    My sincere condolences to Nancy's family. I have never actually met Nancy, but I feel like I have known her for a long time. When I was first diagnosed with kidney disease and found the DaVita website forum, I was devastated. She quickly became my friend and my rock. She understood how I felt, and she encouraged me, educated me and lifted me up when I needed it. My heart is broken and she will be greatly missed. God bless her, and her family.
