  1. Our thoughts and prayers are lifted up for Mabel and her family. We will always remember her bright eyes and smile whenever she greeted us. A very strong and courageous lady. Love you all…..

  2. To the family of Mabel Nelson Murray: Mabel is my first cousin, my Father Albin Lovendahl and Anna Nelson were brother/sister. We did not stay in contact with Mabel or her family but I send my condolences to all of you. It is difficult to no longer have your loved one with you. I am sorry I will be unable to attend the service on Saturday.

  3. Please accept my sincere condolences for your recent loss. My heart goes out to you and your family. I have always received comfort from the Bibles’ word at Philippians 4:7 which reads “and the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your heart and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus”.
    I hope you can receive comfort from these words as well. Margo Simmons
