To Tim and Randy, and all the family,
I have been blessed to know Nell since Rodney and I came to Macon when CFBC called him as pastor. Bill and Nell were both encouragers, and have been nothing but blessings to me and my family. Nell was so beautiful, I always told her she looked like the movie star Rosalind Russell, and she was almost as humorous. I will miss her, already missed her presence and singing as she was unable to attend. I think of them both, united in heaven, worshipping our Lord, and I smile. God bless you all with His comfort, joy, and peace in the precious memories of Nell as you transition to her absence.
“Absent from the body, present with the Lord!” Praise God!
Lovingly in Him,
Celeste Queen
“Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints!”
