Dear Family: You are in my thoughts and prayers. Our family is getting smaller every day. That’s one uncle and one aunt for me this year. I know all of you will miss her. After I saw A.J. and Norman at Uncle Daniel’s funeral I went to see Nellie. When I told her who I was she smiled the biggest smile and talked to me. She looked good that day and well taken care of. My love and prayers will be with each of my cousins their children and grandchildren during this time of sorrow. All my love to each of you, Theresa Hyder D’Amore (Bootsie)

I remember my grandma and i would be walking down the road she always had to stop and talk to nellie to see how she would be doing. I enjoyed seting and listen to what they had to say. if my granny couldnt get out she would call and talk to her. She was just like my granny. As I got older ididnt go around much . when I took my first child to visit her she was so happyfor me. then when had my second son she always loved for me to bring them by. I will miss her I enjoyed going to visit every chance I got to see her. I was going to take my boys to see tomorrow.She will be missed but we all know that she is in a better place now.
