I feel so lucky to have seen Nela in New York City back in January where I learned about her connection to New Vision Center for Spiritual Living. It was great to reconnect with her and her wonderful family. My heart goes out to all of you and my thoughts will be with all of you on the 21st.
Nela had such a wonderful spirit. She was a strong, generous, caring and amazing lady. She touched the lives of all who knew her and she was always thinking of others. One of the things I remember about Nela was when we were co-workers. Nela invited me and my family to spend one of the holidays enjoying her beautiful yard and pool while she was out of town with her family for the weekend. What a generous and thoughtful thing to do for us. My heart goes out to the family and all who will miss her.
To the Faddis family,
My sincere condolences on the passing of Nela. We were high school classmates and I didn’t know she made the journey to heaven. I believe the last time I saw her was at one of the reunions here locally in Fort Defiance. She was still gorgeous and always smiling.
Rest in peace Nela,
