Wally and Family,
I never new your mother, but from what I have heard over the years from you and Nancy, I can only imagine she was a very loving and caring person. I am sure she will be greatly missed by you and your family, but our faith tells us, we will all meet again!
Our thoughts and prays are with you and your family.

Nina was my second mother when I was a child. Taught me how to swim, and how to dance. We drove many trips and miles together to see her parents in New York from my parents in Pennsylvania. A little known story I remember is when Nina caught the bacon in the frying pan on fire and tried to put it out in the sink running cold water on it, my grand parents kitchen did survive but it was a little blacker on the white cabinets. In my teens Uncle Wally and Aunty Nina were my best friends. In my later years Nina, my Mom, and I had some of the best vacation road trips ever. I recall many trips with those ladies to Atlantic City. Always so much fun. Nina I will miss you so much, you were such a big part of my life. Such a wonderful kind lady.❤️ Condolences sent with a heavy heart to her family.

I am so grateful to have been Nina's priest in these last five years. I will remember her to be a kind and gentle soul whose dedication to St. Raphael's never ceased. To each of you who feel this loss, I pray that God will fill this void with blessed grace.
