Nevah was one of the bravest women I knew, overcoming nearly all challenges in her life. But she overcame all of them with an unbelieveable positive outlook. She first love was her family, and life. Researching her families' genealogy keep her movivated to keep searching every day she could. I was privileged to be part of her searches, and a contributer to some of the information she desired. Now after death she can get some of those questions answered. I am so happy to have her as a friend! Rest in peace!
