No one could me me laugh as hard as Elda. No matter what, her genuine smile and humor was felt by all. I miss "The Club," to this day. Never the sight of a card table fails to remind me of what true Steel Magnolias," are. The stars shine even brighter when good people find their ways home to loved ones. Though remiss in my message, my love is genuine. Rarely do souls like Bib and Elda meet. Their mutual humor and laughter was contagious. If only the world could remember the days of this best generation without anti-social media. To the blessed you are to be part of her.

Dear Nickoli Family: Deepest sympathy over your loss. Serious illness on part of Mrs. Peel (painful infection in scalp) and psychotic breakdown of daughter prevented our visitation with Elda prior to her death …… which we much regret. Appointment with our cardiologist in Fairview Park will prevent our attending services, though we shall be with you in spirit. We loved Elda and Bob, too. Great friends and so involved with so many good things. Their faith was strong testimony to all who continue this journey, and their trust in the Lord\\\'s care will not fail. May our Lord bless you who carry on the family tradition, Our lives are richer because we knew Elda. God bless and care for you all. Rev. Mack & Ruth Ann Peel
