From the first time I talked to Nellie to the last time we talked , she made me smile.
Nellie had many hills to climb but she always had time for everyone including me.
Nellie, you have climbed your last hill and reached a city with streets of gold.
Rest In Peace , and know we will see you again one by one.
Love you Nellie Girl,
Debi

My heart is shattered with your leaving. You were like my second mother growing up. Words can not express how much I hurt from your passing but I do find comfort knowing you have gained your wings and flying high with no more pain. I will forever love you and promise to never forget you. The most precious time I remember is sitting in your lap running my fingers in your hair telling you I would marry a woman just like you. You are one of a kind and no woman will ever live up to fill your shoes. I love you NaNa
