Godspeed, dear friend
This afternoon my dear friend and fellow rug hooker, Nancy Thompson, of Athens, GA, went to heaven after a several month battle with cancer. Nancy, the daughter of late, great GA football coach Wally Butts, was the epitome of a Southern lady. She was gracious, charming, beautiful, funny, sharing, talented and a woman of God. She was one of the greatest rug hookers ever, and would give you the shirt off of her back, or the wool out of her basket. And what a hostess she was!! She adored her family and friends...........and never met a stranger. She will be missed by so many people. I am so blessed to have been able to call her my friend. Godspeed, Nancy, I love you.
