Sarah, Carol and I wish to extend our deepest sympathy in this loss. I remember Nancy very well and will always cherish the moments we had together while growing up. I notified my Step-Sister Shirley Riley Sharp who lives in Winfield,KS and she asked me to extend to you and the entire family her deepest sympathy also. She also asked for me to mention the friendship that she and Nancy shared during her infrequent visits to Big Stone. It helped her to feel more welcome. Carol and I plan to make a contribution to the Lonesome Pine Hisorical Assn. in her name. Our Love, Bill and Carol

Sarah and family: Nancy's passing is a sad loss for all who knew her. Although, I had not seen her for over 40 years, she and Harold spoke to me by phone. Hers and Sarah's calls were acts of generosity and kindness to me. She will be missed.

Dear Harold, Mary Pat and Family,
Nancy was a dear and loving person. We had the pleasure of living directly across the street from Nancy, Harold and their sweet daughter, Mary Pat. It was the happiest of times for us.
She will be in our hearts and memory forever.
With our deepest sympathy,Frank and Marguerite Allario

Harold, though it has been quite some time since I have seen you, and though I am half way around the world, I read of your loss on line and wanted you to know you are in my thoughts and prayers.
