    May heaven open its gates wide for my beautiful Aunt Nelda. May your husband, family and friends be there to greet you along with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and he states “job well done”! So mote it be.

    It has been an honor to be named after my Aunt Nelda. She has always been a sweet and caring person. Now she can rest at peace with our Lord and the rest of the family that has gone on before. Love you always Aunt Nelda. ????

    Mrs Nelda became my friend through my Mom, Virginia Busby. I will be forever grateful for this honor. Not only are many of Mrs. Nelda's creations a part of our holiday decorations, but the memories from library work, The Love Shop holiday hours, her wonderful stories told with such wit...all these memories and more my family and I will cherish because of a beautiful lady and her love.
