I grew up just a couple of doors away from Ms Nelda and her family. Her son Mike and myself enjoyed many evenings in the backyard with other neighborhood kids playing until dark. Mike, Sandra and Charlie, our thoughts are with you and pray that God will provide comfort to you and the rest of your family knowing she is reunited with Keith. God Bless!

Miss Nelda was our neighbor since 10/1/94. She and Charlie and their family became mine and Polly's. We were so blessed to have known her and sit together at Christmas in their sunroom and talk. On occasion we even prepared for storms moving furniture or clearing snow in the winter. Miss Nelda was the type of Mother and neighbor we would all want. She was loving, God fearing and put others before herself. I know she and Keith were so happy to be reunited in God's glory.
