There’s no words that I can think of that could possibly say how much I loved and respected my precious little aunt. She was small in stature but had a heart the size of Texas. She was more than an aunt, she was also one of my best friends. I am so thankful that God chose me to be a part of her family and I am honored to have had the opportunity to share so many things in life with her. Not many aunts can say they were as close to their family as she was. Even the great great nieces and nephews had a special place in their heart for her. They all looked forward to the day when they could say they were taller than her. It gives me great comfort knowing that she is standing tall, pain free, no worries, just walking the streets of heaven enjoying herself like never before. Fly high aunt Nellie, Fly high!! You are loved and will never be forgotten.

I'm so sorry to hear about Aunt Nellie she was a very special lady and Loved by so many all she talked about was getting everyone together and I'm sorry she didn't get that chance. Daddy (Russell) loved her so much I could remember him getting excited when he would find out she was coming to visit him. Sorry I can't be there but know I'm with you all in my heart. Ed and Tom my prayers are with you both 😘 Love you all.
