To all of Nellie's family, Sorry to hear of your loss. I had not seen her since I was small, but in the last few years we corresponded about her memories of my dad, Malcolm McGregor, who passed three years ago, and I was impressed with all she remembered.
My thoughts and prayers are with you.

I have many memories of Nellie with Bible studies, Fjeldberg Sewing Circle, and Ballard Creek Quilt Guild. A fun thing my grandson and I discovered that she was a fan of Star Wars. He spied the tapes of hers when we were visiting at her home.
May the Lord comfort her family.

My sincere sympathy to Nellie's family: I remember Becky introducing me to Nellie at the grocery store and I invited her to Circle. So thankful that she came as she added so much to our Bible study. She was a joy and I feel blessed to have known her.

To my aunt Nellie: Remembering your bright smile and infectious laughter, your welcoming warmth and humor. You lived a good life and were loved by many. And to Ron and Mike and their families, Bill and I are sorry for your loss. Take care.
