One Comment to Mrs. Nell Rhodes Parham

  1. Dr. Rodney Cloud says:

    Nell was a sweetheart and a true example of what Jesus expected a Christian women to be. She and Cleon traveled with me twice to the Holy Lands (Israel, Egypt, Jordan and Greece) and once to the British Museum. As Juanita and I finished our stay of twenty years at the Hendersonville church of Christ, we can say without a doubt that no couple there had a greater influence on us than Nell and Cleon. When I spoke at Cleon’s funeral, I promised her that I would also speak at hers if not away. Sadly–I will be Atlanta representing the Turner School of Theology. I had looked forward to doing the service with Larry, but knowing the wonderful job he will do and how she loved him, gladdens my heart..
