Alice Pearl and family, I saw Nancy once only when she was just a tiny baby. My heart aches for you, my deepest condolences to your family. After Mama died I lost touch with all the news from 'home'. Please get in touch with me, I'd like to 'catch up'. With love, wanda

To Nancy's family....I extend my utmost sympathy to all of you. I am so sorry that I did not know about Nancy's passing until Monday night or I would have been there to pay my last respects to my childhood friend. I have many wonderful memories with Nancy and I thank God for those. Please know that all of you are in my thoughts and prayers!

May God be with you to comfort you and give you strength. We are thinking of you and keeping you in our prayers. When we think of Nancy, we remember her beautiful smile.

It is with great sadness that I sign this note. With Nancy's passing, comes the reality that a wonderful portion of my childhood has also passed. Times of motor scooters, kick the can, and late nights lighting up the roadway in Mike Tarver's Chevelle made being a kid great!

Mike, I am so sorry to hear of Nancy's death. We have not been in touch for such a long time but I want you to know how blessed I feel that so many of my fondest high school memories include the two of you. I will keep you and your family in my prayers as you lean on Him during these difficult times. Sara Routh Barnes
