So sorry to hear of the passing of Nancy. My husband and I often had our date night meal at the New Snack Place. Nancy was usually our server, always saying hello when we came in and bringing me my tea and mike a ginger ale, before we made our choice of a meal. Enjoyed having great conversation. Our condolence to your family. RIP Nancy
