Nelly, my dear sister in Christ ,was the best example of living a Christ like llife.
God is love!
She was the most loving,compassionate,generous ,and self less person I knew; Always putting others first and always responding to anyone in need
She is now living with our Saviour in a mansion prepared for her
The world has lost a lovely person, but Heaven is rejoicing at her arrival there!

Nelly moving to Heaven is certainly a great loss to all her family and friends here on earth, but , Heaven is celebrating the arrival of a good and faithful servant of our Lord ! May our Lord give us the comfort and peace of knowing beyond a doubt that she is with our Loving Savior!
