So sorry to hear of Nellie's passing. I enjoyed visiting with her many times during lunch at The Inn at Northwest Village. She loved that I knew where she spoke of when she talked about Nashville, Loudonville and Applecreek, and she enjoyed conversations about country meals, sewing, etc. She became dear to Lena Hilbert and all of us, and will be sorely missed. Our sincerest sympathy, thoughts and prayers are with her family. --Theresa Hilbert --
