Words could never express the love I received from a real grandmother, till the day I met my Nanny! She was so loving, caring, and God fearing. She taught me so many of her cherish recipes and loved teaching me card games. We share dear stories of her past. I enjoyed every trip we made together to the garage sales. We loved our lunch dates. I can remember after my divorce from her Grandson Conan, her and I cried and we assured each other this would not hurt our relationship and it never did. We kept in touch and she got to know my daughter. I will never know the special, dear love she shared with me unconditionally. Thank you Nanny, for all the love u have shown to me, being your granddaughter. I am so blessed to have shared a bit or your life. Rest in peace my angel!

Nadine was a wonderful person. We have many good memories of all the camping trips and all the 42 games we played when we got together.
She was a devoted and caring daughter, wife, mother and sister. We loved her so much.
