Aunt Nell was so special. One of my favorite memories of her was in Buckeye. She always had the radio on and we would sing and dance to our country music!

Mrs. Ruby Nell was one of the sweetest women I knew. After my mom passed, she would always tap me on the shoulder at church. She was a true blessing Love and prayers to the family.

We always had such fun with Aunt Nell! Her laugh and sense of humor was contagious. The last few years when she was able to join us for our Cousins' Sew Day was extra special. Even this year we all got to speak with her via Face Time. We'll love her always.
