    My deepest condolences on the loss of such a dear woman. I had the pleasure of working with Nancy and building a wonderful relationship. She was a real pleasure to work with. I am heartbroken for her family and will pray for peace for all. Nancy quite simply was earnest and loved her job, and I loved working with her. She just sent me a pm less than a week ago… I am no longer in the area and over 1900 miles away or I would be there for the service. All my prayers, thoughts and love are there through the distance.

    I think Meagan was 2 when Nancy and I became friends. She has stood by me through life and death, and I cannot conceive of a world without her in it. All my heart to her family and all of those who loved, respected, admired and care for her.

    Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep
    By Mary Elizabeth Frye

    Do not stand at my grave and weep
    I am not there; I do not sleep.
    I am a thousand winds that blow,
    I am the diamond glints on snow,
    I am the sun on ripened grain,
    I am the gentle autumn rain.
    When you awaken in the morning’s hush
    I am the swift uplifting rush
    Of quiet birds in circled flight.
    I am the soft stars that shine at night.
    Do not stand at my grave and cry,
    I am not there; I did not die.

    My condolences go out to Nancy’s family and I will keep each and every one of you in my prayers and thoughts. I love you Nancy, yesterday, tomorrow and always! You were such an inspiration and i will never forget you! Words can’t describe the impact you had on my life as well as many others that you taught over the years. You taught us to be confident, efficient, and always professional cosmetologists. You were always more to me than just a teacher, you were my friend! I remember going to Dickson to celebrate graduation and we had a blast! You were always the light in the room that shined the brightest and that light will never go out. You are in the hearts of many and we will forever remember you!

    I am heartbroken for all of her family and friends. Nanc and I grew up together and as her mother told mine, “they’ve been thru thin and thinner together!” She was the truest kind of friend.
    Life got in the way of spending the kind of time together we should have but soon we’ll have eternity to share. Praying for God’s peace.

    Please allow me to offer my condolences for the loss of your loved one. The Bible assures us that you will see “Nancy” again. Jesus promised this at: John 5:28,29. We can look forward to a time when death will be no more. Rev. 21:3,4. As we all experience death events in our lives, we can receive comfort from the scriptures, during our time of grief. Please visit jw.org and search the word “comfort” and there you will find several scriptures. God’s word will serve as a strengthening aid for you. He will provide you with an abundance of peace and the power to endure…

    We both have great memories of her – that gorgeous smile and contagious laugh, we will never forget!
    Nancy was one of the most genuine people….You could not help but smile when you were around her.
    Todd and Meagan, we are praying strength and endurance for you both, and your family during this difficult time.
    “When your heart is without strength, call to the Lord, who is the Rock high above.”
    Psalm 61:2
