I was saddened to see in the Monday edition of the Tuscaloosa News that Nettie Ruth had passed away. We first met probably fifty years ago when she engaged me as a young lawyer to represent her in a matter. Over the years she would consult me from time to time about various issues for which she thought it would be a good idea to have some legal counsel and we became good friends. I learned much about her immediate family, certainly including her long-time husband Ted May, and came to appreciate her as a person of immense integrity, unfailingly good nature and strong work ethic. She always had a ready smile and never was a complainer no matter how challenging a particular situation might be. I was always happy to hear from her and visit with her and often made no charge for our consultations because she was such an uplifting person to be with. She was truly "the salt of the earth" and the world would be a very much better place if we had more people of the great character and positive outlook of Nettie Ruth May.

Well done thy good and faithful Missionary ! Growing up in Alabama Regions of the CME Church, I was surrounded by many excellent roll models. Mrs. May was one to pattern missionary work . Kudos to Pat and the grandchildren for the good care given since Mrs. May moved to Midfield. Praying for the family.

Our deepest sympathy and prayers goes out to the Family of Mrs. Nettie Ruth May. We are grateful for the many years of Labor that she render to help as well as encouraged us on the duties of being a good Missionary. Mrs. May knew her role and she model her role until she just couldn't. I thank God for her and her wisdom. Thank to her family for sharing her with us. She touched many lives and hearts in the CME. Which will never be forgotten or ever overlooked. May God strengthen you and continue to comfort you. God bless you all.
Mrs. Linda Miles & Rev. William Miles

My condolences to the family of Mrs. Nettie May. Mrs. May was so very instrumental in teaching me all she knew about the Christian Methodist Episcopal Church as well as the Women's Missionary Society. She worked hard at everything she did and strived for excellence. Her love and compassion was like a warm hug. She will be dearly missed. Rest in Paradise, Mrs. May! Keeping the family in prayer. Blessings and love.
