I was so fortunate to have known Nancy through activities at St.Johns Lutheran Church in Clinton. She was such a giving person, a very positive attitude,a wonderful woman who was so proud of her family.

Our sympathy is extended to Nancy's family upon your loss. We were so accustomed to seeing the four "Alewine" sisters always together in the grocery stores, at St. Timothy Church in Whitmire for special events, and elsewhere. "Death leaves a heartache no one can heal; love leaves a memory no one can steal." The peace of the Lord be with you.

Rev. John & Barbara Weaver

I am so sorry for your loss. Please know that you are not alone for the Bible tells us that “God is near to those that are broken at heart; And those who are crushed in spirit he saves “(Psalms 34:18). Take heart in the Scriptures for comfort. Please accept my sincere sympathy.

I had so much fun with her for over forty years!
I hope I " grow up " to be just like her. She never outgrew Disney World, and she tried to teach me to knit last year.

Mrs Longshore was a wonderfully sweet, gracious lady I know her "graduating" into Heaven will be a great celebration--but her love will linger here with us as long as we are here too---she was such a Blessing to all who knew her and will live long in our hearts--Family, u are in our love and prayers~~~

We shared a pew with Nancy each Sunday at St. John's and will always remember her. She had a wonderful way of telling us about her family and the feelings she had for them. We will miss her humor and straightforward ness. Our last time with her was at communion, which to us was a fitting way to end our fellowship in this life. May the family receive strength and comfort knowing that she truly believed in the saving power of Jesus.

We were so sorry to hear about Ms. Nancy. She was such a sweet lady. We just talked to her at church two weeks ago and it's just so hard to believe she's gone. Our prayers will be for all the family during this sad time.
