    2 Timothy 4:7
    I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.
    When I think of Neta today I think of the words of Timothy. She fought the battle well, finished it honorably, and kept her faith. Today she is looking down on us with that little grin and joyous laugh waiting to meet us all on the other side of the river.
    Growing up she had to be a runner and a fighter with big brothers who were always giving her a hard time as older brothers do. She would always pull a prank on them and then take off running. As Joey and I reminisced last night she won many of those races. She was the youngest of member a large family of loving folks who helped raise my cousins and me. Neta would run and play with us and always be willing to have a good time. She taught us how to love the mountains and the city where she eventually lived. Her love was unquestionable and her gifts were many.
    Neta and I shared the same birthday. Every year for many years we raced to see who made the happy birthday call first. Eventually those came to an end as I took a career that enveloped my life and time. I wish I had those moments back. . Linda, Ethan, Rebecca, Hayleigh, Rayanna, and I will miss her. I know some day we will see her and she will meet her great-nieces and get those hugs she didn’t get.
    Love ya Russell and Holly. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

    How to begin to express my sorrow. My Aunt gave me so many great memories as a child and young adult . I spent alot of time with her growing up. We always had a great time together, from being with her learning to drive, playing in her backyard with her dog KIng ,to watching her bellbutton pop out when she was pregnant with daughter Holli ,she thought is was the most amazing thing.We lost touch as I grew up and I'm so sorry that happen . I will always remember our times together.
    My Heart and Prayers are with Russell , Holli and thier Families
