    I would like to express my sincere condolences to the family and friends of Nellie Engle. In times like this, filled with sadness and grief, the Bible can be a source of comfort. At Revelation 21:4 God promises to “wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” Just imagine the joy we will feel when we greet our loved ones again.

  5. Erilda & Ron Coleman

    Nell’s family – worked many years at Peter Paul with both Nell & Herb. She was always a joy to be around. At any age it is hard to give our Mother’s up even when we know life does not last forever. Keeping you in our thoughts and prayers.
