Aunt Nelda has been a part of my life since the day I was born and I love her dearly. She never missed sending a birthday card. No matter where I was, her birthday cards found me. She will never know how much those cards mean to me and how much I looked forward to receiving them. Rest in Peace sweet lady. You will NEVER be forgotten. Your favorite niece.
