I had the pleasure of working with both Nell and Gene for Physical Therapy by the request of their Granddaughter Megan. It was an honor that I was able to make a difference in their lives. I no longer want to tap her on her head to make her look up. By looking down she is watching over all her family and friends. She will forever be missed. Condolences and love to family.
