We loved Nellie even though we hadn’t seen her in years. Her grandson thought of her with affection. Even though we were out of touch her memory was still with us because of her sense of humor and kindness.

Janet and family,
I became friends with your Mom at the Waterford, where my Mom still currently resides. Every time I visited my Mom, I would also go to your Mom's room. Nellie was such a sweet lady. We enjoyed visiting, I would bring her treats I made, sometimes a book, mainly I brought her my friendship and hugs. I only ever met Janet, but I knew she also had another daughter and son. Nellie and I both LOVED music – soft music to relax with, and older songs from the past. I would knock on her door and her music would be playing as she reclined in her chair with a satisfied look on her face. She had an ornery side to her, too, if I said a certain thing or shared something funny. I used to do daycare for newborns to 3 year olds, and now my ministry is 80- ??? So many elderly residents have no one who visits them or makes them feel like they still matter. I have given my time and love to so many who have now passed away, and it has been SO worth it. I am happy that Nellie no longer has any pain and that a whole new body awaits her in heaven. My thoughts and prayers are with all of her children and grandchildren at this time. Janet, I know this has been especially hard for you, being the child here in Lincoln who is called upon. I am in the same boat. It can be SO overwhelming at times. I was SO thankful for all of the help others gave me during the time of my Dad's death – I would cry from fear, sadness, tiredness, etc., but somehow, the Lord helped me through it all. I just want to say that I am glad for the small part I played in your Mom's life and I will miss her.
