Aunt Nina will always stay in our hearts as one of the kindest people. Always smiling and looking ahead, always taking care of loved ones. She will be missed, but mostly she will be remembered.

Oh Tess (and Helen, too), I'm so extremely sorry for your loss and the heartache you must be going through. I will always remember her and growing up at Charcoal Inn with my mom. And I sure will miss her smiling face at the fair every year. She always had a "Hi, Stephie" for me. Wow. May God bless you at this time and in the future and hopefully her soul can rest peacefully now. Stephanie and Jon
