Nel- a tiny woman but a large presence. Fierce in her love of family and her love of Nature, and her snapping bright eyes could pierce you with whatever the emotion she was feeling at the time, IF she wanted you to know. Her sense of humor was subtle but on target. She'd smile and give a sidelong wink, but you'd have to be quick to see it. She loved a good joke and a glass of wine. Loved driving in the countryside, looking at the fields and the clouds. Eagles' nests. Forests, Hayrolls. She listened more than she spoke. Filled her home with art, books, flowers, and love. I see her in all the little things she made or gave to me over the past 37 years, many which are in my studio. I am sure everyone she touched has their own shared precious moments, and I hold mine dear. See you on the other side, Nel!

Dear LuAnn, Bill, Phil, and Janny; Though our encounters with each other are rare these days, my memories of each of you and your mom and dad are permanently etched somewhere deep inside of me. Your mom was one of my very favorite people on this earth. Always kind and considerate; often funny; forever someone that left this world having made it a bit brighter for all she knew. She loved each of you deeply and I know that love is somehow reflected in your own lives. May you find peace in knowing that she is in a good place that she so well deserved. Love you all. Cousin Dave
