I wanted to send along two links that were provided by Karen Neely Revels who has been so fantastic in helping us organize this service at Rollins.

The Knowles Chapel is on the Rollins College campus and should be easy to spot. You can find it on the map here:s!m/38732

Parking is off-site, but just a short walk away at the SunTrust parking garage. Please plan to allow a few moments to park and walk to the chapel prior to 10am:!m/347886

The reception will take place adjacent to the chapel in the rose garden.

I want to take a moment to thank all of you for your love, your support, your assistance, and just for being there during this time. Please know that it has helped immensely.

FPN recently learned that our friend and colleague, Nancy Gidusko, and former Director of Corporate Citizenship with Walt Disney World, was moved to hospice care in preparation for her next journey which is expected very soon. Her family is putting together a book and has asked us to reach out to FPN members who knew Nancy who would like to share something about how she impacted them.

Her family has created a Facebook page (In the search box, enter “The Nancy Info Spot.”) and made it public where you can leave your story and other messages. . In the words of Kevin her son, “Please take a moment to share your favorite memory of Mom (on her page); we want to honor the lively, inquisitive, witty, kind, and charitable woman we've all been so lucky to have in our lives. Thank you."

The family has expressed their thankfulness for the outpouring of the memories and stories shared thus far. You can also email your story directly to Kevin and Patty : and

FPN posted to The Nancy Info Spot yesterday evening. FPN Chair Patty Maddox summarized her personal feelings as well as the feelings of our Network this way: “Although this is a devastating time, the memories shared by a multitude of Nancy’s friends is a testament to a life VERY well lived. Nancy is an amazing woman who will be greatly missed. We should all hope that our life is as impactful to others around us.”
