To Kim and all the family... I was saddened to learn of your moms passing. She, to me, was an important anchor in the Hickory Tavern community. Always so welcoming! She will be missed. Keeping each of you in my heart and prayers now and in the days ahead. Hugs.... Ann Templeton Poole

Kim and Keith and all the Armstrong/Wallace family is in my prayers. I really didn't know Nan that well until I went to work with Vocational Rehabilitation in 1978 and low and behold Nan worked in the same building with FHA. We both enjoyed those years of working so closely together. We enjoyed our afternoon treats of a nice cold coke from Pete Fuller's filling station just down the street. She became a good friend to me then and remained so during the years. I know your hearts are broken but there is no doubt that she is experiencing the glories of Heaven right now and we will all meet her again another day. May God give you comfort and strength during this time of loss.
