Her husband Glynn Boyd said his “heart is shattered” in a statement he released Saturday morning. 

“She had so much to give. So smart, so talented, she was my everything,” Boyd wrote in a post to his Facebook page. “I just don’t know. I really don’t. No man, but God could’ve taken Nancy from my arms.”

Boyd is a former television reporter himself and the current public information officer for the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office. He also thanked the New Orleans community for its condolences and support. 

“Lastly, as the kids and I mourn our loss, we ask for privacy,” he said. “We appreciate what so many of you have done already. We will all get together soon and celebrate the life of Nancy Parker Boyd.”

Here is Glynn Boyd's full statement on the passing of his wife:

"My heart is shattered.

The dearest and most wonderful person in my life is gone.
Our Nancy was an amazing human being.
I was so proud of her; first as an awesome mother of our three children, just incredible. She loved them so much. This is why this is so difficult to comprehend. And she was a true professional, a master of her craft.
She had so much to give. So smart, so talented, she was my everything.. I just don’t know. I really don’t. No man, but God could’ve taken Nancy from my arms. I loved her and she loved me. We were best friends.
I would trade places with her right now. I should’ve been on that plane.
She was our road map, our compass, our guiding light. I’m lost without my wife. My faith tells me joy will come in the morning. My joy will come when I see Jesus and my Nancy Face to Face.

The outpouring of support has been incredible, social media, phone calls, texts and local media.

Please, please keep us in prayer.
And lift up my in-laws in prayer as well. Nancy was the apple of their eyes. Fox 8 we love you. This battle is not mine. I’m turning it over to the lord.

Lastly, as the kids and I mourn our loss, we ask for privacy. We appreciate what so many of you have done already. We will all get together soon and celebrate the life of Nancy Parker Boyd
