Aunt Nancy's family We were so sorry to hear that Aunt Nancy had passed away and very sorry that we were unable to come to the service but we do express our sympathy and you will be in our prayers. I am the granddaughter of Ever Lou Ogletree Bryan and she was the sister to Aunt Nancy. I have been coming to Union Point for the last few years because my grandfather's sister is in the nursing home there and I have driven by Aunt Nancy's home many times but have found no one at home. I lost my mother about four years ago so I know what a terrible loss it is to lose your mother. Once again you will be in our prayers. Susan Hall
