Nancy and Don were pillars of our community. Meeting our home needs thru the Youngsville Cabinet Shop. Nancy’s expertise – helped many of us with our hardware needs. We spent many evenings at the Youngsville Wayside Restaurant enjoying their home cooked meals and reminiscing about times past. Our condolences to the family.
