My Nina was an incredible woman! She was a second mother to me and helped raise me to be the woman I am today. Her strength through adversity showed me that a woman can be strong and resilient while loving and nurturing. She helped me get my first "professional" job working with her in the office of Leong-Kuba, and pushed me out the door when she knew there were better jobs ahead of me. I certainly didn't know it at the time however she believed in me. Reflecting back now, she taught me to strive for success and grow both personally and professionally. I will forever love her and miss her!

My thoughts and prayers to Scotty, her sisters and brothers, and all of her family and friends.
