  1. I am so sorry to learn of Nell’s death. I have always loved her heart and spirit. Even though I have not seen her for years I will not forget her. She was always very kind to me and my sons. I felt like part of her family. Even though her body is gone, I am glad that her spirit is now at peace.

  2. Dear Lynn, I just found out the passing of your Mother. I am so sorry and I would have loved to meet your wife and kids . My # is 256-417-0600.
