Sorry about Mrs. Neff. My thoughts and sympathy go out to all of her family and friends. She obviously touched a lot of lives while on this earth and made this small part of it a better place….. Since she made to a hundred and there’s a HEAVEN, I’m sure there are many on the other side who have thanked her personally already.
