Neva was not only a wonderful sister-in-law and sister in Christ, she was a true friend...someone who would be there when you needed her...I don't think she truly understood how many lives she touched in one way or another. I will miss her but I am happy for her because she is now in the presence of our Lord and Savior. Love you Neva. Thank you for sharing your family and your love of God with me throughout these years.
