Nelda was a beautiful person and I'm saddened that I won't see her again on this earth but I know she'll be in Heaven waving for us to come on in. My heartfelt sympathy and prayers for the family.

Nelda and I went to school together from first grade until we graduated in 1962. I’m glad we were able to catch-up at the last reunion. She will be missed.
