A shining star in our firmament has just been dimmed. Our precious sister-in-law Nancy, a fun and funny and totally awesome Catholic woman of substance that we loved with all our heart and soul from the moment we met her -- our heart is breaking now -- after these many years of profound suffering on her part and her loving husband, Tuck's brother Clarke's tender ministrations, has gone to meet her maker. We were miles apart as far as religion was concerned, what with her being a devout Catholic and our being an atheist, but as with Fallaci and Papa Ratzi, there must be something true. Nancy's and Clark's children are the lights of our life. There must be something true.
