The story of the painting, “Butterflies for Nancy,” that Penny Treese and myself recently put up for auction for the Nancy Cole Care Fund to help with her terminal illness has been published by Decaturish. (Like them on Facebook.)
Another Decatur business owner, Larry McDaniel of Trinity Title on East Ponce, decided with his wife to purchase the painting and give it back to Nancy and her husband. They hope it will soon be hanging in her downtown Decatur Southern Sweets Bakery, alongside the artwork of her husbands’, Phil Allen.
The two couples had bonded by frequenting the restaurant about three times a week over the last several years. Both wives have struggled with cancer. They have all taken a class together from Penny and myself, which is how we met. We will continue to pray for and support this family.
