Years ago, our family attended United Methodist Men breakfast. We shared a table with Nancy and Tracy. Nancy noticed my daughter staring at a tie Tracy was wearing. She said, "What do you see Meghan?". His tie, the man's sitting in a toilet." Nancy loved that reminder from time to time. We will miss you! Prayers for the families!

Tracy, I am so sorry to hear of Nancy's passing. She was a wonderful and sweet lady, We enjoyed every moment that we were around you and her. She was also a fantastic square dancer, and I always enjoyed calling to you two.
She will be missed very much.

The days Linda and I spent together with Nancy and Tracy in West Jefferson playing golf and enjoying each others company were always be among our most cherished memories. Nancy's ever present smile and chuckle especially in response to Tracy's jokes was one of the hallmark aspects of her friendly personality. Her love of children was evident as a teacher's aide in the public schools of Cabarrus County for many years.

Tracy, Alan and Sammie, Ron and I were so sad to hear of your loss. Your wife and mom was a very sweet and friendly woman. I remember when I first moved to Concord how kind she was to us. She certainly raised wonderful sons and will be missed by everyone. Linda and Ron Mikesh
