    My sweet sister-in-law, Nell Bailey, was a very special person in my life and the dearest Sister in Christ anyone in the family of God could have. I loved her dearly and will miss her presence on this earth more than I can express. She is enjoying the presence of the Lord and those loved ones who have gone on before and I will just look forward to seeing her again some day. My sincere condolences to all the family. May God bless and comfort all. In Christian love, Peggy
