My husband and I send our sympathy to all of you on the loss of your sister and loved family member. May God give you comfort and peace during this time. Nova served as our “nanny” and assisted our mother for many years when I was a young girl and a teenager. As the oldest of six children on a busy apple farm, I remain grateful for the help she provided.
