Polly, Mary Ann and I want to extend our sincere condolences on Nell's passing. She was such a good friend to Kristina during her days at McGehee. Last time we saw her was at LSU when she, Meredith and Kristina were looking for some housing. PS: We were both out of town for the weekend and were unable to attend the services.

Dianne Schlosser has kept me informed. I am so sorry to learn about Nell's death. Free spirit she was, as stated in her obituary. I want you, Polly, to know that I am thinking of you and of all those who loved her.

I don't have your home address so I am using this forum to tell you how very sorry I am that you have lost your darling daughter. God bless you and your family members as you mourn such a huge loss. I can't even imagine how sad you must be, Polly.
