    We have fond memories of Nell and the rest of the Ratliff family as neighbors when we lived on Charboneau. We learned fast that you could never outdo Nell when it came to showing appreciation. Anytime you took her a dish of "goodies", she would return it filled with more and better than you had taken her. We loved her dearly.
