Dear Mr. & Mrs. Morgenstern and the rest of the family,

I wanted to share with you some of the things I love about Nancy.

A few years ago, she wanted to set me up on a blind date. I -wasn’t sure about it, so Nancy suggested we go on a double date. The dates didn’t work out, and I don’t even remember the guy’s name or what he looked like, but I do remember that Nancy and I laughed a lot. Nancy laughs all the time. She is that kind of person. Happy. Funny. Energetic. Athletic. She is a woman who embraces life.

I admire her ability to be so disciplined about cycling and working out at the gym. I could never keep up that pace. I think most of her friends admire that quality in her.

But most of all she was a good friend, a loyal friend, and a solid person. The two of us drove to a mutual friend’s wedding a few years ago in the pouring rain. Nancy and I weren’t even so close with this person anymore. But she felt it was the right thing to do. She was right. We went to the wedding and many of the guests were absent because of the poor weather conditions. We were both glad we went.

One other thing that stands out in my mind is that Nancy isn’t interested in gossip. While it’s pretty common for girlfriends to get together and talk about others, I don’t remember her ever being all that interested. She wasn’t judgmental of others and expected the same in return.

I miss Nancy. Her loud laugh. Her smile.

She was the best.

Affectionately,
Yael Federbush
