I worked with Mrs.Mary for alittle over a month & I quickly fell in love with her.I will miss her dearly and all the stories she would tell about her and Mr.Nova.Continued prayers for the family
Mrs. Simpson was a beautiful soul and a gracious hostess when I visited her family in Lexington a few years back. I look forward to seeing her again in heaven, where the angels certainly are rejoicing her arrival.
Our deepest sympathy to Nova and his family on the death of dear Mary Elizabeth. We live across the street from them and have been friends for a long time. Please know we will continue to pray for you during this very difficult time. Hope God will give you the strength to remember the happy times you shared. Ron & Colleen Duell
