Aunt Nellie was always the sweetest lady and always put her family first & I know she will be missed.

I'm praying for comfort for everyone.

Miss Nellie was a sweet, kind, loving lady with whom we shared many wonderful times, at church, at home, at the beach, at a country cemetery where we both have beloved family members. She always treated us as if she were our mother, offering the same maternal love and care as our own mothers did! We will miss her, her wisdom, her precious character, her wit, but at the same time, we are so grateful for having known her. God bless her family; I know you will miss her even more. Thank you for sharing her with us.

This woman represents the biblical definition of wife and mother. She loved her family greatly, and it was obvious. She continued loving her husband past "till death do us part." I could only dream of being in her league.

Nellie; wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, friend... you will be sorely missed, but we are happy for you that you got to go home. Rest in peace, Angel.
