When you feel you're going under, hold tighter to my hand. "Lean on me, when you have no strength to stand, and on me when your heart begins to bleed. When you come to the place that I'm all you have, you'll find I'm all you need."

My thoughts and prayers are with the Smith family at this time. Nancy was a wonderful friend and an amazing teacher. I've never forgotten how she taught her lessons, especially Bible, with her incredible talent of story telling. To this day, I remember her specifically teaching the life of David to our 6th grade class. She was so fun! And....I 'll never forget driving through SC with Nancy and her quoting her "speech" about spanish moss to everyone in the van over and over again :). Nancy, we love you and will miss you, but will find comfort in knowing that we will see you again someday in Heaven. Love and prayers!

My thoughts and prayers are with the Smith family at this time! Nancy was a wonderful friend and an amazing teacher. I've never forgotten how she could teach lessons, especially Bible and make them so vibrant with her wonderful talent of story telling. I learned so much in her class. And...I'll always remember driving through SC with Nancy and her quoting a speech about "spanish moss" to everyone in the van over and over. :). Nancy, we love you and will miss you but will find comfort that we will see you again in Heaven someday.

I have so many memories of Aunt Nancy that it would take much more than this space to type it all. She was a dear friend to my mother, Susan Hutson and treated my siblings and I like she would her own nieces and nephews. I was also privileged to be her student in 5th and 6th grade and can truly say she made learning fun. Thank you, Aunt Nancy, for all you did in your lifetime. My family will always remember you fondly!
I pray that the Lord will give comfort to those who are missing you and will miss you in the days to come!
