Mrs. Adams, I spoke with you on a few occasions and had a laugh or two with you over your daughter Dawn, you were always a pleasure to talk with. May you sing with the Angels and watch over your precious family. With love, Sandy Elliott

So very sad to hear of Aunt Nell's passing. She was a truly kind and gentle soul who had the best laugh ever. She had a way of hugging you that let you know she meant it and she was a very large part of some of my most wonderful childhood memories. My love and prayers are with her and the family.

Someone who will be greatly missed. Someone who was more like a sister than a neighbor. I love you Nell and again I miss you so much.
