    The nights at medicalodges will never be the same without Nina. She made our nights so much brighter with her witty comments and then devilish laugh. I am thankful for getting to know Nina and having the privilege of caring for her. Thank you for sharing her with all of us!

    Nina is greatly missed by many at Medicalodges. I will never forget the many dances I got to have with her. The many phrases she loved to say, ’Oh, Sugar, Oh Piddle Pot, and many more. The many nights of helping us ’file paperwork’. There were many memories made and I was so thankful to be part of them. And most of all, it was such a privilege to take care of a wonderful woman! God Bless!
