Thank you so much to all our family and friends for the beautiful words about our mother. We appreciate your thoughts and prayers, flowers, and all the beautiful memories about her that you have shared with us and her friends. She truly was the most beautiful, wonderful and loving mother any child could ever ask for and it is almost impossible to believe she is really gone. But that is only temporary for we shall see her again one day soon. And, in the meantime, she still lives in our hearts and in our memories. We love you, mom. We miss you dearly. Love, Deborah, Jeff, Janella and Chris.

Dear family of Nellie Bake, I want to tell you I am very sorry for your loss, Nellie was a very sweet ,caring person , I had the pleasure of getting to know her through working for Personal Touch of Eaton. She appreciated all that people did for her ,she made you feel like you wanted to do all you could for her. Most of the time though you felt like you were cleaning ,clean ,as all that cleaned for her would say ! But she appreciated anything you did ,and I got to know her that way ,we would share stories and laugh and appreciate life ! I know she loved her kids very much and expressed how she wanted to make them all a quilt before she passed . I am very sorry i cant make her funeral , I wanted to very much, my prayers are with you at this difficult time. Sincerely ,Sheri Morrow

Her voice was soft, her words kind, her eyes bright and her faith strong. Her children are a testament to her fruitful life. Seeing her in the final hours of her life brought to mind the words of the Apostle Paul: "O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?" - Pastor Mitchell Tolle Lexington Kentucky
