Mary Del Nelson was my closest and best friend when we were growing up! We spent hours riding horses together and exploring all of the woods and creeks around our families farms since we lived next door to each other. As we got into high school we both became so busy that we spent less time together but still remained close friends. I will always cherish the times that we had together and still miss Mary Del and the innocence of those times.
