    Please accept my deepest sympathy. I worked with Nadine for four years at Michael’s Construction. It was such a pleasure

    Linda: sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. I lost my Mother just over a year ago. It is a difficult time, the best relief is to stay close to Jesus, family and friends. Talk about all the good times and “laugh” yes laugh it is the greatest release. I believe our parents would want us to live an be happy when they are gone.
