Nell was such a kind, loving lady. When I lost my hair due to chemo in 2016 she insisted on giving me 2 beautiful hats which I will always treasure. She is with her Lord.

You never know how your life will be touched by another's. Mrs Lutge was such a sweet neighbor. We spoke almost daily about nothing in particular; the beloved birds she watched from her porch chair, the famous white squirrel and where he could possibly be this week. We chatted about our street, the neighborhood news, the weather, my little dog, her children.
She was like a daily dose of sunshine and maybe our brief chats made her feel a little more connected too.
I will miss seeing her. She lived a long and full life and touched many lives. Perhaps the family will find comfort in the fact that she continued to do so even in the smallest ways, each day.
