Nell attended our Widow/Widowers Fellowship at Salem UMC for several months until she had to leave the towers. It was always a joy to see her enter the door with that contagious smile and such a sweet personality. We have tried to minister to her with cards letting her know how much she was loved and missed. We will have a Remembrance Service in February for all the members we have lost this year. You will receive an invitation.
