Condolence From: Katie Winner-Weitzel
Condolence: Dear Mr. Pinney, My heart is very heavy and saddened. Sometimes there are no words, only over-flowing thoughts from the heart. Please know how very sorry am for your loss of such a special person. I have many fond memories from Alliance, Ohio. A good life leaves behind seeds that keep on growing. To one of my dearest childhood friends, Debbie, to Jeff and Todd: Your Mother's life, her stories, her values, and her love of family all live on in each of you... what a wonderful legacy.

Condolence: My sincere and deepest sympathy to the family on the passing of Nancy. There is no one who was a greater professional mentor to me than Nancy. I owe so much to her for her wisdom and guidance over the years. She encouraged me and inspired me over and over and I am forever grateful. She was a true friend and mentor.
Recently she was on my mind and I had done a little research to see if she was still living in the Lake Lure area. I started a letter to her when I heard of her passing. I am devastated that I did not get that letter to her. Although I told her countless times how much she meant to me, I would have loved to have done that one more time. She will always hold a treasured play in my heart.
To those who are left behind, I know you are aware of how special she was and I feel certain you have dear memories to hold onto. I know I do and I am grateful for those. Sending you love at this challenging time.

Condolence: Dear Hugh and Family,

We were deeply saddened to read of Nancy's passing in The Review earlier this week. What warm and wonderful memories we have of our times together across the years! Whether in our homes or more recently at Lake Lure, the hospitality and laughter we shared and enjoyed will never be forgotten. May God's comfort be with you in these difficult days.

Condolence: To Hugh and Family,
We were sad to read in the Review about Nancy's passing. Such fond memories shared with her. The first Campus Circle meeting I attended as a young mother/teacher was at your home on East Milton St. in '74. You were both so welcoming. Nancy and I went to many teacher workshops together and played Bridge with a group of friends for years. She always had a smile and took life as a fun ride. Glad for your life in NC. Kathy and Steve.

Condolence: Dear Pinney Family,
I am so sorry to hear this news. I had Mrs. Pinney at Knox (6th grade) and she was my favorite. She always spoke lovingly about her children. She was just like a mother to me.
