The family of Belva J Brown Lewark would like to express our sincere condolences of this tremendous loss. Mother and Nancy were life long friends. Nancy was Mother's Bridesmaid at her wedding in 1953. What a beautiful soul Nancy had and shared her love with all whom she met.

Tommy and family, please accept my sincere condolences on the loss of Nancy. Tommy, I am Mary and Farris Neeley's daughter. We spent a lot of time at Grace and Roy's when I was a child. You and Nancy lived just a few houses from them. I have only seen Nancy a few times but I remember how pretty she was. The last time that I saw the two of you was at the Eagle's Lodge and you and I danced in the Circle dance. Mom and Dad visited often with Grace when she was married to John L. May God wrap His loving arms around each of you and give you peace and comfort. Again, I'm so sorry for your loss.

No one can ever replace the amazing person that Nancy was. When the person you are closest to is gone, hold on to their memories and know they are always with you.

Mothers provide a shoulder to cry on and are an infinite wealth of advice. A mother’s love is unconditional and losing someone like that is never easy. A mother is with us always, first in her lifetime, then forever in our memory.

Our deepest condolences to you and your family during this time.

Dear Pam and family,
We are sorry that we are not able to attend Nancy's funeral, but we wanted you to know that we are thinking about all of you today and praying that God will grant you comfort and peace. Nancy was one of the sweetest, quiet spoken ladies we have ever met. We know you will miss her immensely, but rest in the fact that she no longer suffers and that she is waiting in heaven for all of us who believe in our Lord and Savior.

May God bless all of you.

Larry and Sue

We have such good memories of our friendship with Tom & Nancy. We met while we were all square dancing in Florida and found that we were all from Indiana, not far from each other. We continued the friendship on past our dancing days. We have visited them at their Florida home in Punta Gorda, Florida several times and also visited their home in Connersville, Indiana. Likewise, they visited our home in Crawfordsville, Indiana. Nancy was a lovely and sweet lady and she will be remembered fondly in the years to come. God be with Tom and their family during this difficult time.
