So sorry for your families loss. Nadine was one of the nicest ladies I’ve ever known. She will be missed by everyone who knew her.I loved going into the store just to have a conversation to hear her England accent . She always had a smile for whomever she talked to. May God give you strength and closure and may he watch over and protect your families forever and ever, Amen
