    I have so many great memories of Aileene. I remember the family get togethers we had celebrating holidays, to the many camping trips our families took together and the weekend cookouts, with our parents throwing horseshoes, while us kids played. What I remember most about Aileene was her laugh and her great smile. David and I want you to know that we are sorry, that we are not able to be there with you to celebrate Aileene’s life. Please, know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. David and Lana Nellis.

    You were the best Grandma anyone can ask for. I have so many memories of my childhood being at your house running around the yard playing games , playing with LOVE and the board game Pay Day with all my cousins. I remember doing puzzles and watching your favorite soap opera; “Days of Our Lives”. and of course will never forget the famous snack drawer… As I got older the memories were more precious and funny “of course with a few bush light” ..and our love of many reality shows such as BIg Brother , Bachelor and Bachelorette. and last but not least Survivor. You will be missed dearly but am so happy you are able to finally rest and have peace.. Love your Grandma,
