    Dearest Joyce, Phil and family, Your mother, Nell, was a wonderful woman. The times I met her at church when she would come up from Kentucky to visit were a blessing to me. She always had a smile and you could tell how much she loved the LORD. I know she is with our LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST, and so happy . It will be hard for you I know. I lost my mother of 91 yrs last November. But knowing you will be with her again someday will help you thru. GOD BLESS and keep you in his loving care. Sincerely, Joyce, Terry and Keira Phillips and families.

    So sorry for your loss of your mother and my sister in law. She was a wonderful person and a devout Christian example. It has been many years since I lost my Mom but I still miss her. My Mom was always there for me and loved me unconditionally. I am sure that your Mom was that kind of Mom. No one will ever love you as your Mother…Praying that God will be very near you as you go through the next days and months.

    I am so sorry for what you and your family have gone through! It is a relief to know that she is in a better place and not suffering anymore. I enjoyed her friendship so much when she would be in the store. Such a nice, sweet lady. Gene really enjoyed kidding with her also. Happy memories!!! The adjustment will be hard but God will get you through it! Be sure to call me if I can help in any way.
