Nadine was such a kind and loving woman, and we will truly miss her! Seeing her in church was always such a blessing, as she was so interested in how everyone was doing. She had such a way about her, and I'm sure she is smiling and feeling such peace in Heaven. God bless you, Vic, and may you and the other family know that we are here for you. Love you all!

To tell you how much you have meant to me and my family is hard to do. My mother has been half way across the country most of my adult life especially when I was having all my children. You have been the mother I didn't have around. You have been there for me and all 5 of my children, Tammy, James, Jeff, Kevin & Andrew for the past 30 years. I will not know how to go on without your encouragement and advice. You have been my rock through a lot of difficult as well as happy times. You never once faltered in your love for all of us.Thank-you and you will be greatly missed.

I'm not sure where to start when describing a lady that was part grandma, part mother and also a dear friend. Nadine became a part of my life as a small child and I know her influence and love has played a role in who I am today. I just hope I thanked her enough over the years and told her that I loved her as often as I could. Thank you for taking care of my brothers and you and Vic helped them become what they are today...good people. I will miss you forever and never forget your great big laugh or your always inviting hugs. I will miss flying home to Kansas City a couple times a year and coming to see you. I know I now have a guardian angel attached to my
shoulder every night that I go out to patrol the streets. I see you in my heart Nadine, thank you

Nadine was my angel on earth. She was the best surrogate mother and grandmother we could have possibly wished for. Her love was boundless especially for children. I truthfully believe that she helped me raise my daughter Stephanie to be the wonderful person she turned out to be.
