Dear Jo and Ed,
So very sad to learn of Aunt Nellie’s passing. As a child I have so many great memories of you all spending New Year’s Eve at our house and me sleeping over your house on the weekends. Your Mom was the best! She could always be found dancing in the kitchen and laughing until the wee hours of the morning. It was never too late for a cup of coffee and cookies when we would stop over on many an evening. Your Mom was kind, compassionate and the brightest light in anyone’s day. I will cherish my memories of sweet Aunt Nellie, and take comfort knowing she is with God in Heaven whom she dearly loved. I know Your Mom will be watching over you and is at peace with your father by her side.
