    To all of the family, I am praying for God to wrap his arms of comfort around you during this time. Nell will always be the person I look to for inspiration. She always kept the long days at Walmart bearable and would always keep me out of trouble. Until we meet again my friend, go enjoy a ride around Heaven in the motorhome with Jim. Love you!!!!
