    • Joann,
      I’m so sorry your Nene passed. My mom (Susie) and I visited with her about 6 months ago. She was so proud of you! She was the only aunt I had and I will miss her.

    I’m so sorry for the loss of such a caring, sweet lady. I’m so glad my son , Luke Isacson, got to meet her before he and Karen married. Her family loved her so much. Rest In Peace.

    She was the best! So many of my favorite childhood memories were playing in her home. She would let us take bubble baths in her giant tub when we were kids and bring us snacks and let us drink out of fancy glasses while we played. She was the sweetest and will be dearly missed.

  7. Dearest Bernice, I will miss our Sunday visits. You were a sweet and classy lady. I loved laughing together and discussing politics. May you be reunited with Cecil. Give George and Miriam a hug for me. May you rest with the angels. — Love,

  8. Aunt Nice was my great aunt. I loved when she and uncle Cecil would come to visit or we would visit them. Nice and my granny were sisters who were so very close. My heart is saddened at her passing but happy that she and Cecil and my granny are together.
