    As a child growing up. I wanted to be just like Nellie, to have that sweet and gentle spirit. As i got older, i realized that God made Nellie special. The most beautiful, special thing ever said to me was by Nellie. It was after Mom died, we were at the funeral home, and straight out of the blue, she walked up to me, hugged me and said, 'I don't care what anybody says, YOU WILL ALWAYS BE MY SISTER!!'. I didn't understand what she meant at the time, but i found out later. The world lost a beautiful soul!

    She had the the most wonderful voice i have ever heard, when she would hug me i always felt safe and loved, she was one of the most giving and caring people i have known, my heart rejoices to know she is in Heaven and is having a reunion with those of our family who have gone ahead and knowing we will all have that reunion someday.
