Tammy, Johnny and Cindy. So sorry about aunt Nell. She was truly an inspiration to us all. Stephanie, Teresa and I visited her a few years back and she told us stories about grandma and grandpa we had never heard before. Memories I will always cherish. The thing I loved most about Nell was her beautiful smile. She always greeted you with it. I see the same smile on all three of you! Great heritage!
