Condolence & Memory Journal

Sad to hear of Nelda passing away. I had a teenage crush on Nelda and sister Jeanette from the first time I saw them sunbathing on the roof of their house. They lived on Cherokee ave and I lived on mcdow. Through the years Nelda was always friendly and kind to me, as was the whole Mcateer family. May God bless Neldas Love ones in their time of grief.

So sorry to hear of Nelda's passing. I would run into her and James in various places in Rock Hill and they were just as nice to me then as they were 30 years ago. She was a beautiful person inside and out. To the family, please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you. I pray that God will comfort you during this very difficult time.

I am so sorry, Aunt Nelda, for not coming to see you more often, Especially after Daddy died. I kept saying I was going to, but something or other kept getting in the way, and I hard few years after Daddy left me. I hope you knew that I did love you very much. You always treated me nicely and I will miss you..even though I'm jealous you get to see my Daddy again. I know he'll take good care of his baby sister. Until we meet again♡
I love you always. Sarah Lee McAteer Williams
