Mary and Pamela, our deepest sympathy and prayers are with you and your family during this very difficult time. I know there are no words that can be said to relieve the depth of pain that a loss of a loving mother can bring. May your mother's memories never fade in your thoughts, may her joyful spirit and beautiful smile always remain within your heart and may God always guide you with his never ending love. Please know that your mother is now in a place of peace and comfort and may God wrap your family and you in his love and give you the strength to get through this as a family.

Your mother was so loved by many at Castle Rock and she will be missed by all of us that were blessed to have crossed paths with her. She was such a loving and caring person, until we meet again Nelda we will be thinking of you often. I'm still in such shock that the last day I got to see your smiling face was on Mother's day outside your window that your two loving daughters were decorating for you. We will miss you our friend and we love you dearly.

Bettye Waddington ( Room 102 at Castle Rock) and her daughter Susan Perrin
