Dear Dick and family,
Neva was as sweet as southern tea.
Fond memories of all the times we gathered together with the Chelfs. You all are like "family" and have our deepest sympathies at this time.
Take care of one another.

Neva was a very special person, she always was willing to help and known for her cakes and taught many how to decorate them, but none compared to hers. She loved her family and enjoyed life to the fullest. She will be missed, prayers said for all of them.
