Nellie,
You have a beautiful soul and love could be seen in your eyes when looking at your children. I pray that you are in the presence of our God the Father, and are reunited with your friends and family that have gone before you.

Nellie Owens, better known to me as, "Moo" came into my life 7 plus years ago. She touched my heart from day one. She was such a sweet, loving woman to myself and my husband. My fondest memory is our trip to Tennessee. She had such a great time and we had many, many laughs. That trip was special to both of us. I'm so thankful to her family that through them, I came to know and love her.
Forever in our hearts, Moo! Daddy Jeff and I will miss you! ๐Ÿ’•

Mom was a very sweet, had a beautiful smile and gave great hugs ๐Ÿค—. If it wasnโ€™t for my Mom I would not be the person I am today. Going to miss her cooking. Mom had a great sense of humor, cracking jokes, her laugh.
