I appreciate the many acts of sympathy during our time of loss and thank all of you for the memories of our time together in school. The outpouring of love continues to be a great comfort to me personally as
I strive to make a new life for myself in Evansville, Indiana where I returned to work in the Bernina Sewing Center shop still owned by my family.

With a thankful heart,

Nellie passed away in 1999. I talked with her sister this morning.
