    She was my best friend my first two years at Carleton. I haven't spoken to her in 50 years but her death shocks and saddens me. RIP, pal.

    A couple of her poetry books are available for sale online, under N.C. Hough. She also published, as George Twelftree, two poems in The Carleton Miscellany, 1975-1976 Spring-Summer.

    I was married briefly to Nancy from September 5, 1987 to 1988. Reading this obituary brings back a lot of old memories.

    I have moved on with my life. Goodbye Nancy.
