Messages of Condolence
I am deeply sorry for your loss. There’s a promise god makes us at Acts 24:15. I hope you can find comfort in this.
Aunt Nancy was such a kind, quiet gentle soul. Never a harsh word never held ill towards anyone. She made the best pies ever tasted, especially her lemon and chocolate pies. She had a talent for crochet. She made the prettiest pink sweater with a bonnet and booties for my daughter Melissa when she was born almost 42 years ago. I had passed that on to my daughter years ago. I remember the first time I met my aunt Nancy. Grandma Brady lived down on the hill off Seltzer ave I think and Uncle John brought his wife (Aunt Nancy) and his two daughter’s Teri and Kissy to Ohio. I remember looking at her thinking who is the Angel from heaven? So beautiful and such poise and grace. I was but a small girl I don’t recall the year. I love you Aunt Nancy and will never forget your inviting me to your home on 65th for a birthday party and we played pin the tail on the donkey. I think it might have been Teri;s party. You will be missed and most certainly not forgotten.
We will miss aunt Nancy, she was just a wonderful person. We will be praying for you all and my mom Pat and aunt Faye, Nancy’s sisters, are heartbroken and wanted you to know how sorry they are that they aren’t able to make it up there. Please know that your family in Tennessee loves you all very much and are praying for you, may God give you the strength you need and comfort you during this time.
I’m sorry for your loss of a very good, kind hearted and generous woman. Over the years our family has been connected, when I would see Nancy out and about she always greeted me as though I was another daughter, niece or family member. I am certain that I have never heard her say a mean word about anyone. If she had a mean thought, she kept it to herself. A very good person who will be missed. My condolences to the whole family.
Nancy was more of a sister to me then sister in law She will be often on my mind and always in my heart
I know much excitement filled a house on River Street in Newport Tennessee when the Brady’s rolled into town, And many years to follow there after. Nancy was loved by all and was always so sweet and kind. I always remember her smile and kind eyes, she will be truly missed by her family. My prayers are with you all through this sad time. Keep your eyes on Jesus and put your trust in him and and looking forward to a family reunion in heaven someday. God bless you all I love you all Trena
I’m sorry for your loss. God gives us a hope with everlasting benefits (Revelation 21:4). The peace of mind from meditating on these benefits can bring a measure of comfort for this time. JW.ORG
