I just found out about Nina's passing. I have many fond memories of Nina and family growing up together. All the times we got to visit at my Parents and family gatherings and our house. We even got to visit at their house a few times. Nina was like a big sister to me back then. She will always hold a special place in my heart. Our deepest sympathy to Kenny and all the family. We know the pain and sadness. Be thankful for all the wonderful years we had her here with us all, knowing Nina is at peace, her spirit glowing as she is united with our loved ones that have passed before her. She will always be with us in spirit with her beautiful smile to comfort us.
