    I just want to say "Thank You" Nell, for being such a true light unto the Lord. There is a true Void among us without you here...for you were one of His. You were a loving example of a mother and daughter relationship to me every time I saw you and Pam together...What a bond that inspired me to do the same. I am so grateful to you both. How deeply you are missed...but know how happy you are IN THE ARMS OF JESUS.
