      Hi Larry — I live across the street from Mr and Mrs Caldwell. I was out of town all week and am so sad to hear this. I called Mr Caldwell this morning just to check in and see if they needed anything.

      I wanted to establish contact with family members as a resource in case anything is needed. I told him I would call in and check on him and bring him food when I overcook. I’m just so sad for him. Mrs. Caldwell was a lovely soul and my daughter an I loved her.

      If I can get/share contact information, please email me at judi883@gmail.com.

      Thank you,
      Judi Beachum

    Nell Caldwell will be missed at Charlotte Heights Church of Christ. She was a very special person with a great heart. Floyd worked with James at Ford and enjoyed his company there and when we had things at Church sometimes James would come and they would try to sit together. Floyd always tried to be friendly with him and even asked him to come to services. We would still like to ask you to come to Church services. We loved Nell very much and she will be missed!!!!!!!
