To Nettie's family, friends and classmates, we send our love. We wish that all who remembered our classmate take this opportunity to reflect on the memories of Nettie, for this is all that's left when we go on to be with our ancestors, cherished memories. Our spirits go back to our Creator and our bodies go back to dust, so the only thing left are the the MEMORIES. Guest what, we write these episodes on our journey in this life on earth. PEACE to ALL.
Conrad Dalton & Doris Turner, Class of 60
