Sorry to hear of Nina’s passing.I had the privilege of knowing her through my working at Bishop Meadow Manor. My condolences to the family.

Your for your loss, Ian.

Ian, I’m so sad to hear about your mother’s passing. She lived an astonishing life both here and away. Through her work, I expect she touched the lives of many, and that many have lived better lives because of her. I know that she will be missed tremendously by all who knew her. I remember that one day at Stonewall, she and my mother had a really great chat one afternoon. They were chattering like long lost friends even though they just met. I recall you and I spending part of an afternoon wrestling with her recliner when the mechanism failed and the locknut flew off to the farthest reaches, while she supervised the work from the sofa. Best wishes to you, condolences to your family at this difficult time. Peace.
