"I just learned today of the passing of Nell & while I am deeply saddened by the passing of a dear friend, I know that heaven has gained a special & sassy angel. I'll miss our talks, the sound of your piano playing drifting thru the neighborhood & your contagious love of life that was a daily influence on me. Thank you for the beautiful butterfly that I'll always cherish & the friendship of the best neighbor I could have asked for."
"Jean, Angie and Sharon,
So sorry to hear about Nell's passing. She was a wonderful babysitter "grandmother" to our boys during their formative years. We will always be grateful to have had her for a neighbor and sitter. May she rest in peace. Jean and Elliott"
So sorry to you and the family for the loss of your Mother, my sincerest condolensces."
"Oh how I loved her sassy spirit, her warm smiles, and creative personality. I loved her bathroom (with all our writings). I cherish the conversations l have had with her and how no matter what I was talking about she always asked, "Nicole where is your handsone brother Austin". It takes an awesome mom to raise a daughter like You Jean. You are one of a kind, just like your mom was. You were lucky to have her and blessed to see her again one day. I truly miss her already!! I really loved her!! Wonderful, gifted soul. Heaven is lucky."
"Jean, your mom was a classy lady. Not everyone has the amount of musical and artistic talent that your mom was blessed having... and she seemed to want nothing more than to share it with everyone. I count myself a lucky one to have been able to get to know her and to share in some of her passions, such as art. Her warm and loving memories will now live on like a song in all of our hearts. Prayers to you, Angie, Sharon, Abbie and family."
"Jean, my thoughts are with you and your entire family. When one is lucky enough to have a parent(s) that teaches us so much, and provides the love that allows us to be true to others...we honor them by passing their stories and their love to those who surround us.You are blessed to have so many smiles, hugs, tears, music but most of all deep, warm memories. Hold them tight...as I know you will. Your mom will be with you each day and you will always be with her. You will now celebrate her life in a way that differs from the past...but it will be a celebration of life...so meaningful. "Love and memories last forever""
"Jean and family,
We are saddened by the loss of your Mother. Keep her memories close to your heart and she will always be with you. May the music play on in heaven. Thinking of you all in our thoughts and prayers. The Becker Family"
"What a wonderful Lady and Mom. Will always remember our conversations through the years. The family was blessed to have her as their own. Sing, sing, sing Mrs. Imm"
"I didn't know your mom but I do know she raised a wonderful daughter. Cherish all your memories and she will be watching over you in heaven. Thinking of you and you family and sending prayers."
