To the family: Seth & I would like to extend our most deepest sympathy in the loss of such a beautiful lady. We lived next door to Jeb and Needra for years while we raised our kids. What a kind and loving couple they were. Your family will be in our daily thoughts and prayers.

My sweet Aunt Nedra I know you a happy being on Jebs arm again. I have such great memories of vacations to Fun Valley CO, holidays spent at the Cornelius farm, playing in your makeup and you brushing my hair. You are a special lady and one of the kindest people I know.

My condolences to Tony, Kyle, Tag and family members. My favorite memories of Nedra are the summers that I spent with Nedra, Jeb and the boys during the years of 1964 to 1968. I always looked forward to seeing my Aunt Nedra, or Tinsy is what we called her, during holidays and homecoming. I loved her dearly and stayed in touch almost daily on Facebook during the last few years. I will surely miss her but I rest in the assurance that I will one day see her again when I pass into GLORY.
