To all Nina's family,
A memory to smile at: I visited Nin as I called her and she called me Nanc, in HS school she was Block and I was Douglas. We were always getting into trouble in our gym class together dressed in our "beautiful green rompers" that we shortened.
A few years ago I was able to fly to Florida to see Nin, we missed no time in catching up and laughing about old times.
Nin was there as I was going through issues with my boyfriend.
I asked her why did you let me marry him you were my friend?
Her answer was "would you have listened to me"?
You were in love with love as we all were at the time. We had such a great visit. We even drove to WPB to see Nina's friend Sharyn. Played bingo ate Chinese food. So glad we were able to see each other again. Best Regards to all Nanc
