We lost one of the best, she loved her family with all her heart, will always miss her. -Ruth Marie Rickard
My Aunt was (precious) we visited her a couple years ago and loved every moment with her. She reminded me of my dad (Melvin) so much. Her laughter made you want to laugh, she was funny and made you feel the comfort of home. She was the last Aunt my sister and I had on both sides of the family. I called her recently and even though she was sick she sounded as new as a blossoming flower, I prayed with her told her I loved her and I could feel her love as well. Now; the visit, the phone calls are good memories I can hold for the rest of my life. She was a good Mother to her girls, a wonderful wife to her husband, and a outstanding aunt. She was like a rose in my heart and we know rose's will bloom again. -Connie Knott
A thought of comfort and condolences to the grieving family. Aunt Nadine was my grandfathers sister. When he passed in the early 2000’s, Aunt Nadine and I enjoyed some great conversations and tears over coffee together. I will always cherish those memories with her. Prayers for her family in this time of mourning. I am thinking about you and sending love. -Joshua Ainsworth
