Some of my favorite memories are of Nellie and her sisters coming over and sitting on my front porch, laughing so hard we could barely wait for the next visit. She loved to sweep. I would hear her outside in the summer, sweeping the road in front of our houses, dressed like she was going to a gala, her hair picture perfect. She was wild about her little dog and could make a weed look beautiful. Linda, you have taken wonderful care of your sister and I cannot fathom how much youll miss her. Hold on to those memories...they seem to keep them alive in some sort of way. Your are all loved and being prayed for. Genie
