I have the fondest memories of my childhood when we would visit Muleshoe. All the Nickels women cooking, & boy oh boy did they know how to throw down a feast! Birdie & Guy's home filled to the brim with lots of family & joyous laughter. These are the memories that make our life complete, that mold us into the people we are today. Oh, how I wish I could turn back time & go back to those days. Things were a lot simpler, folks were kinder & families were closer. I wish I had not wanted to grow up so fast. No one can go back, but the memories live on forever in our hearts & minds. I am so very sad for our loss & this is yet another chapter in our book of life now closed as Evelyn was the last of the Nickels matriarchs. May God bless our family & wrap his arms around & comfort Claude in this time of sadness. Love to all my family...Cindy Bowerman

To the family and friends, I am very sorry to hear of your loss. I hope you can find comfort in this scripture taken from 2 Corinthians 3,4 where it says: "Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all of our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God.". I also hope that these scriptures might be of some comfort as well, Philippians 4:6, 7, Isaiah 26:19, and John 5:28, 29.
