  3. I loved Nina. We attended school together in Dexter. I was privileged to visit her a few times recently, and she was always such a blessing to be with. I’m a better person for knowing such a wonderful woman as Nina. May God comfort her family with His love.

    So sorry to hear about Nina, she was always fun to be around. She had a great sense of humor, would always get her opinion in..haha, had a strong constitution as well as very compassionate. She endured painful chapters in her life, but still had that wonderful smile to greet you. She will long be missed.
