Aunt Nellie was a wonderful, strong woman who took me in when I was a very young boy and cared for me when my life circumstances had taken a turn for the worse. She, her generous husband, George and Daughter Joan showed me the greatest of kindnesses and the love that only family could give. I wasn't the best of company but they were the best of friends. I shall always remember her with fond recollections of her many kind acts and deeds towards me and my Father. I wish I had stayed in closer touch. I will miss her greatly. My sincerest condolences to Joan, her family, and my Aunts Verna and Alma.                   David
