Although this is about Nelda, it is also about both Johnny and Nelda.
We have known Johnny and Nelda since the 80’s. When people speak of them, it has always been Johnny and Nelda or Nelda and Johnny. They have always been one and the same. Johnny and Nelda had one of the few story book marriages that was truly made in heaven. They have been role models to us as to what a marriage should be.
Mary Ann says “Friends are the Family you choose”. ---------- Johnny and Nelda have been our Family!
Without a doubt, Johnny and Nelda have always been the most gracious hosts and our most welcomed guests.
Nelda was Beautiful, Classy, Funny, Upbeat, Kind, Compassionate and Genuine! She radiated class, whether dressed for a formal affair or just wearing shorts and a T-Shirt. She was very classy and fit in perfectly no matter where she went or what she did.
In the 30+ years we have known her we have only heard wonderful praise for the amazing lady she was. It is a shame there are not more people in the world like her, as she was and still is an Inspiration for so many of us.
We are truly blessed for the way Nelda touched our lives. She will live on in our hearts forever!
Although we are saddened and will miss Nelda dearly, we are comforted knowing God has greater plans for her.
To Johnny and the rest of the family ---- We pray that God will comfort you and provide you the strength you need during this difficult time.
