      She was a very special lady. Enjoyed it when she came in the Variety store. She was always good for a hug and a great big smile. πŸŒΉπŸ™πŸ˜‡πŸ’—

    What a pleasure it has been to be touched by Neva’s spirit. She gave and received Love like it was second nature. I feel very fortunate that our paths crossed and we were welcomed in as family. Neva was Love and Sunshine wrapped up with a little bit of mischief:). Her legacy is certainly a life well lived! We will miss her and will keep her in our hearts. Love to all family and friends. Stacy Cooper and Crew
