Miss Nell was my grandmother, Mary Jo Eidson's, dear friend. When my family and I would come to visit from Virginia, Miss Nell was always there to visit with us. I used to love to go to "Miss Nell's" home to play with Theresa's old toys, and the dogs. So many of my childhood, and even young adult memories included Miss Nell. What a loving soul this world has lost! Miss Nell was precious to me, and I am so sad to hear of her passing. Sending you much love.
