    Barbara Nell was one of our most beloved individuals since Sherrill and I married. I spoke with her at lengththe day befor her birthday and we enjoyed our long conversations. Sherrill and I thought just as much of her and Coleman as we did anyone we knew from childhood to an adult, Both have and will surely be missed. Almost everytime we spoke she mention about Carla and Puckett moving closer by so she could live with them. May they both be in heaven side by side still enjoying the fruits of their labor and know they are in our hearts forever.
