My condolences to the family. What a long beautiful life Nina lived. It was wonderful that your family gathered around her in her final days. Another gift Nina received in her life was a friendship that grew into a mother / daughter relationship with Sheri Steiner. Her dedication, love and unselfish care came from her heart. I'm certain Nina was very at peace with this kindred soul who was with her till her final day. May Nina be at peace and that perpetual light shine upon her. Amen
