Precious Family, I am so sorry we are unable to attend the celebration of Nell and RD's reunion. Just know that we share your sadness, but also your joy in knowing your Dad and my Dad were there to greet her. What a joy it was to hear her great laugh. I hold so many memories of her from my childhood that I will cherish. I love you all and am going to miss her so much. Sending much love and many prayers your way. We love you every one.
