Doyle and Family, Beth just told me about this a few days ago. I was so sorry to hear about Mary Nell. She was a special person to me, and I know she will be missed. I think of y'all so often and the "good ole days". May God give you peace and His comforting love during the days, weeks, months and years ahead! Love y'all, Martha (Kinard)Fielder
