Learning of Nadine's death brought back a flood of childhood memories. She was the youthful, vivacious, fun loving Aunt who was terrific with kids! Later she was the supportive daughter-in-law who gave much help to my aging grandmother. All good thoughts of a woman who is sure to be missed by her family. My special condolences to Larry and Judy as well as the younger ones in their families.

Larry it's been a while since we had seen you. We use to be on with Ringle Express. That was a lot of years ago. Just wanted to let you know how sorry we are for your loss. God be with you and your family.
