We lived next door to Nell, my aunt,until I was 8 years old. Every chance I got I was at her house! Oh what fun Evelyn and I would have. There was always a place at the table for me. What a good cook she was!I remember there were many family members who spent months to years at her house. I don't think Nell ever turned anyone away from her door. What a generous woman. Nell will be missed, but many happy memories and love will remain in my heart. Margie Cox Westwater.
