    Nellie left a mark on every person related to her. A very loving person who showed compassion, kindness, caring and unselfishness toward her fellow human beings. Of all cousins, she was the eldest female and was always present in time of need. We are missing you already, but we know you are looking over all of us as you did when you were here.
    Thank You for sharing your life with us and showing the way it should be Iived.

    Remembering you and Nellie in our minds and in our hearts. “When you speak of her, speak not with tears, for thoughts of her should not be sad. Let memories of the times you shared give you comfort, for her life was rich because of you.” (unknown author).

    Peace, Prayers and Blessings,

    Milagros Vega, Diana McCumber and family

    The below adjusted quote of Lynn Keachie's poetry best describes you, my dear cousin Nellie:

    A truly meaningful life possesses an inherent sense of both self and purpose. It celebrates truth, love and freedom and reamains forever appreciative of its blessing. It is a life that gives and cares and makes a difference in endless poignant ways. It leaves the world a far better and brighter place than it would have otherwise been.
    For if you are joyful and share your bliss at every turn, then you walk among the most successful beings to ever grace this earth.

    Love you Always,

    Ruth Beverly

    This is a journey that we all must take, but take heart, if she trusted in Christ as her Saviour she is with him in heaven, where there is no more pain or dispair!
    2 Corinthians 5King James Version (KJV)
    5 For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.
