    Randall, Terrie, Earl and all other family members so sad to hear of Nancy’s passing. I have so many good memories of her with my sister Jenny and I when we were growing up. I know this is so difficult for you but God will bring you through this. Y’all are in our thoughts and prayers now and in the days to come. Love and prayers for each of you.
