  1. Tina Austin (friends)

    To the family I would like to send our condolences from Chris, Candi Parrish and Tina Austin. She will be missed. I still remember days getting off of work and sitting on the front porch talking to her and Suzie what wonderful memories. She was a great person as well as her other sisters. They all are a kind family. While covid was going on I even got the chance to stop by and say hi from the car and check on her. She was sitting on the front porch and I was so glad to see her.

  2. Shirley, Susie, and all of the Tolbert family. Matthew and I are saddened to hear about Nellie. We have such wonderful memories of all of you. The genuine love that Nellie had for the kids was never in doubt. How many babysitters can say that kids wanted to spend the night instead of going home. Wish we could be there to give all of you the biggest hug. We will always keep you in our hearts and prayers.

  3. My deepest sympathy to the family of Nellie Tolbert, she was a good woman. She was wonderful helping with Connor and Bradley.
    I will forever be in her debt.
    Love and hugs to all.
