Oh my friend all the times we lifted each other in prayer, our talks being there for each other I greatly miss. Nell you were a go getter even when you were down it didn't stop you. All the times you would be there for the A/C, or no matter what time at night when the alarm would go off at the church, garbage can out on the curb you always made sure we had our supplies not to mention all the good meals you brought yum yum. SIS NELL IT'S GONNA TAKE A TEAM OF PEOPLE TO DO WHAT YOU DID. I woke up this morning to 7 female cardinals out my door. I thought about mom, you & my friends were looking out for me. ANOTHER GUARDIAN ANGEL. I know you had a special homecoming RIP my sister love you . you will be in my heart. WE WILL MAKE SURE LEROY IS O K.

My thoughts and prayers are with the entire family as I know your hearts are heavy now as mine is too. I lost a very special friend. Have been friends since the early 70's. we shared so much. I got Nell into the real Estate Business.. I was working in a real estate office and I told her if she would go take the test for her realtor license she could come to work for my office.. and she took her test, and her license came in one day at the office and I called her to see if she was ready to come to work. she was so happy because she was not sure if she passed the test.. she came to work with us. we were personal friends and also co workers. Nell and I visited a lot and talked on the phone daily. she was in touch with me her last two days here.. we shared so much .. she will be sadly missed ... Heaven got its brightest angel .... Nell I love you and rest in peace my sweet friend.... till we meet again,, Rose Segura
