Beautiful Nada! Our families first became acquainted in the 70s. Years later I recall her picking me up from the airport, hiding me in Jill's room, sticking a bow on top of my head so I could surprise Jill when she arrived at the house. Nada brought me coffee in the mornings during my visit, and always made me feel welcome. We fished at the pond and had a great time together! More recent memories were spending the day in Gatlinburg, eating at Paula Deen's, and a surprise birthday party for Nada! Keeping your family close in thought & prayer!
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family Jill! I know it is more difficult to find closure during this time of pandemic. Just want you to know we love you.
She was a sweet lady and will be missed. We are so sorry for your loss.
Cary, Donovan, and Pam Stewart
