Our thoughts and prayers are with your family at this very difficult time. Nene was a wonderful lady and full of fun and enthusiasum. She had an uncomparable jest for life! We loved being her neighbor so many years ago and sharing Melissa and Dani’s memorable times with her. I know your heart is breaking but be assured that she is with our Lord and is enjoying a fabulous homecoming.

Christine and Kathie, Nene was a wonderful mother in law to me, I will miss her very much and Christmas will never be the same and her absence will be felt by us all. I know how much she loved her daughters and how proud she was of each of you. I wish I could take away the pain your both feeling but be assured that there was a joyous homecoming when she arrived in Heaven. Love you Nene

Will miss this “Great Women”, she was so special to so many. I enjoy patching her up from time to time. She told me some great family stories. And I learned from her the famous family quote “ya think”… I pray for all of you at this time, wishing you to be at peace, in time.
