Dearest Leo, Derek, Raymond and families:
Nellie was a treasured friend and so full of life. I always enjoyed the many telephone calls, cups of coffee, parties, dinners that we shared when I lived in Owen Sound. Nellie helped me find my way when I was new to Owen Sound and made me feel like part of your family. I always admired her strength, kindness and honesty. She enjoyed her life as a wife, mother, grandmother and friend.
I am grateful to have known her and share in your lives. You Leo, Derek and Raymond have always been dear to my heart even though I moved away so many years ago.
I will look forward to seeing you all again in the near future. You are all part of me, my memories and my future.
Love and strength to you and your families during this sad time. My thoughts are with you. Nellie will never be forgotten.
You are all in my heart. Always and forever, Hendrina Hofstetter
