I know you are out of pain   I know you are with our family and friends   I know you are in a much better place   I know you are looking down on us, knowing we will be ok   But knowing all that, I miss you so much   I go past your room, wanting to talk to you   I go in your room and open the curtains and telling you that it’s nice out  or it’s raining  or it’s so hot out that you can’t breathe    I still go in there to talk to you   I still tell you that it’s too cold or too hot in there  

Please continue to watch over us  please continue to love us We love you  we miss you   You are lived down here as much as you are loved up there   

Behave yourself   Laugh often  

I love you. I miss you.  See you.

My Nina was a great person, she was caring and kind I think to myself, now that she's gone but really she isn't gone shes just not physically. She is probably the most loved person i know, she is going to be you brat

my nina was my best friend. I would always go to her when I have something to be upset about. She was about the only one who could make me smile when I was sad. I know she’s up there with everyone that’s passed but I miss her you know. I am so happy she isn’t in ANY more pain. but I’m also unhappy because it was her time :(. she won’t live to see me grow. I never knew that morning would be the last morning I would EVER talk to or see or feel her alive and breathing. I love you nina , I’ll see you soon❤️.

Please accept my sincerest condolences.  I worked with Bill for many years at Vanguard.  Bill was a great business partner, always made my job easier, and an even better person.  I always enjoyed Bill's sense of humor.  I know his Vanguard family really missed him when he retired so I can only imagine how the family is feeling today.  My thoughts and prayers are with you.
