    Dear Myra, Donna, and Family, It is hard for me to believe that your Mom, Nell, as I called her is gone. I will always see and remember her when we all lived in Bluff Park. She and I go back so far. I remember us going to the air port one night about midnight to pick up my grandmother and found ourselves in downtown Birmingham on a one way street and we could not figure out why all the cars were going in the wrong direction, we finally caught on! Nell will remain in my heart a long time and so will her children Donna and Myra. Our sympathy and love, Shirley and the Gerhart family. They all loved Nell too.
