  • Jenelle will be so missed. She was such a sweet, loving lady. She has a wonderful family. Phil and Mar were such great caregivers and I know how much she was loved.

  • Aunt Nell was a sweet and loving person. She was always concerned about we all were doing and never failed to ask about my Mom, her sister-in-law, if she wasn’t with us when we visited. Always felt at home when we visited their home in Ohio. Will miss her very much!!!❤️❤️❤️❤️

  • Our condolences to Tom & family on Nell’s passing. Nell was such a sweet woman, always made us feel right at home. Our prayers are with you all at this time. Bruce & Sharie Littleton Dean.
