For Nina

There are people in life who are a privilege to know.  They inspire and encourage and motivate others around them merely by their presence.

And then there are times when those same rare souls do the same - and more - as they face an illness that robs them of this precious life.

On September 7, our friend Nina passed away after a nearly six year battle with ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease).

Nina loved.  Nina was loved.  And as St. Paul said, that is the greatest of gifts.

She knew joy in this life through the love of her devoted husband and children.

Nina knew peace in this life because of her faith. 

She had a special love of the rosary - a cherished gift to those she left behind.

May Nina, and all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in Peace.

  1. Such a touching, eloquent and elegant tribute to your friend, in words and tangles. You reveal the blessings bestowed upon her family and friends. Pope Pius XII said, "There is no surer means of calling down God’s blessing upon the family… than the daily recitation of the Rosary." May those blessings follow and comfort all who hold your friend in their hearts.

  2. I love this Aunt Adele!
