Public relations pros should take note of this passing.
I did not know Nancy, but her reputation as a communications executive seems to be matched, or exceeded, by her heart and charitable nature.
Look at today's brief obituary, but more importantly, look at the comments from her friends.
I would hope all PR pros look at the importance of not only giving out of your pocketbook, but also out of your soul, as Nancy did to rescue cats.
And, of course, we still battle the "name game" - we are public relations professionals, not publicists.
