Mary Nell was a co-worker of mine at the Jones Store Co. hair salon in Kansas City. She was a precious lady with a heart of gold and a smile that could light a room. I loved her stories of her beloved homestate of Texas. Ironically, I’ve lived in Texas for 25+ years now! I’ve thought of her many times over the years. Sending thoughts & prayers to her family.
