    Nina was my dearest friend who loved everyone and truly was a great example. Personally she was always there for me and I am very grateful. My heart is with Bill, Kelly, Ryan and all of her extended family at this difficult time. My comfort is knowing that she is in God’s home (probably hollering at Collette).
