Marcie, Harriett, and Marty, Danny Daniel and I are so sorry for your loss. We are out of town and did not find out about Nancy until today. I do not know how it feels to loose a mother, daughter, or sister, since I still have not lost either but I imagine it is devastating. My prayers are with the family. We love you all, Granny, Papa, and Marcie were a large part of our lives for many years, our hearts go out to all of you.

Marcy, Brian, Harriet, Marty,

I am Reminiscing my childhood, and Nancy was a HUGE part of my life. My best friend growing up. She left an indellible mark on the Sperlich family, (she is in most of our family pictures). [Smile] She is thought of often in our family and we will miss her. Nancy will always hold a precious place in my heart.
Family, my heart and prayers are being poured out on your behalf. May God give you peace and help you through this difficult time.

My deep felt condolences to the family. I am blessed to have known Nancy as a long time friend. Through the many years we kept in touch as our lives crossed paths. My heart is heavy with sorrow but my memories are filled with smiles and laughter. I wish I could have said goodbye. I have been told the Lord only picks the prettiest flowers for his bouquet He truly picked special one.

I worked with Nancy in 1978 thru 1983. We also were roommates for a short time and both redheads. She always had the most beautiful complexion. Rhonnie always updated me or her childhood friend Liz would let me know what was going on with her. I met her son when he was young but never have had the pleasure of meeting Marcie. I was able to visit her at MUSC with Liz and she was very coherent, she talked, smiled, laughed and we reminisced which was fabulous.
