  • Les and I just learned of Nadine’s passing today. Although we knew it was coming, it still was sad to hear. She was so sweet when we would enter Memory Care as she would be sitting in the dining room and ask if she could help us. Then she followed by saying, “There isn’t much I can do but I can yell for help.” May you receive comfort in the memories and love that surrounds your family.
