I'm so sorry to hear that Nadine has passed away. She was the sweetest lady, that was loved by so many, and she will be missed by so many. Now she is in Heaven with Oscar, Louise, J. Harold, Sharon, Sandra, and all the others, sharing stories, smiles, and hugs. My thoughts, and prayers, are with you all. God Bless!

I am so saddened to learn of Nadine's passing. She was such a kind and lovely person with a ready smile. I am sure she will be missed by so many and most especially by her boys whom she loved to the moon and back. I know she is resting in Christ's loving arms and eager to celebrate her homecoming with all her family and friends who went before. I pray for all who loved her and may you know "the peace that passes all understanding".

I was in a rock band in high school called Multiplex, and Nadine was our drummer’s mother. We rehearsed in the garage of her house for many months back in 1973 through 1975, and that fact alone should’ve qualified her for special recognition of her patience and support! I remember her as kind and always supportive and concerned for our welfare, and I know she will be missed by her family and by the members of our band. May God welcome her into His presence with all the glorious music of Heaven. Peace.
