    Nelda was an absolute joy. As the receptionist at Manoir Pierrefonds, I had the privilege of knowing her and seeing how loved she was by every living thing that surrounded her. Her light will be missed.

    Nelda was a great model. I enjoyed our phone conversations and her optimistic view on life. My husband and I met her through her good friend , Mary Graham. What a pair these 2 seemed to form. We will miss her and all her great qualities. Hélène Payant and Anton Chow
