"Nancy graduated with my husband, David Waldrep.  We were very shocked and saddened to hear of Nancy passing.   We became especially close to Nancy when she married David's best friend, Jackie.  Although Nancy moved after Jackie passed, we made several calls to keep in touch.   She will be missed by many and our sympathies go out to the family."

"Nancy was more like a sister to me.  She was so kind and caring, and she was so supportive of my husband, John Riley Perkins (her uncle) who had a laryngectomy and died of cancer last November.  She truly "walked the walk".  She will always be in my heart.  My thoughts and prayers are with you today and always."

"I am deeply saddened to learn of Nancy's passing. Nancy and I graduated from Bluestone High School in the class of 1958 and have remained friends through the years. I must say that she was one of the sweetest persons I have ever known and always wore a matter what. I'm sure God had a special place for her in heaven. My deepest sympathy to her sons, Andy and Keith."
