  • The last of a generation has passed. So sad in some ways. We’ll miss you Aunt Nina. May you rest in peace.

  • My prayers are with Aunt Nina’s surviving relatives, and especially her care givers. She can now rest with Uncle Floyd in heaven. I will miss her.

  • Aunt Nina was good to we nephew and nieces, baby sitting when we were ill or Mom was in a pinch. She taught us to eat the belly buttons out of ground ivy, ground cherries, and sour grass, things of amazement to us as youngsters. We treasure still Christmas decorations she made from our wedding gifts wrapping paper and likewise treasure her spirited approach to life and other lessons she taught us. May she rest in peace .

  • I too remember Aunt Nina looking after us when we were too sick to attend school and Mom could not take off work to stay home with us. She always had a unique sense of humor and I will cherish the many craft items she has made for me over the years. Makes me happy to know that she is finally together again with Uncle Floyd after waiting 35 years.
