Venable remembers Nancy

Columnist Sam Venable

The first time Knoxville Sentinel columnist Sam Venable was in the home of Jim and Nancy Tanner in South Knoxville, the longtime local favorite storyteller/author was only 10-years-old working on his merit badge for birds. 

Nancy loved to laugh, loved a good story and read Sam since he began to appear in print. And since she lived 96 years, she more or less read every column he ever wrote. 

In today's column, Sam remembers Nancy who died one week ago today: You gotta be famous for 'something'

And, indeed you do.
