I am so sorry to hear of Nettie's passing. I only met her once and she reminded me so much of Grandma. The same spirit. I only wish I had gotten to know her better.

No words can express how much Nettie meant to me. We had so much fun together. Her smile was like the sun. Sometimes we would laugh until we cryed. She was so proud of her two boys and their families. God Speed until we meet again.
