Even though we know it is right it still hurts. I will miss my dear friend Nelda. We shared some wonderful days, phone calls, visits and fun trips to 3482nd Ordinance Reunions. She will always hold a special place in my heart. Heaven received a Beautiful Angel. Sending My prayers and love to Nelda’s family at this difficult time.
