Thinking of you dear sister Nadia. Although I’m sad without you, and wish you were here. Within my heart your lovely smile still shines bright and clear. I treasure all those memories of growing up with you. The secrets we would always share, the childish things we’d do. And as the years passed quickly by, we grew closer still. I miss you dearest sister and you know I always will.
Dearest Dean and family,
We were so sad to hear of the loss of your dear mother, Nadia. We will always remember your beautiful mother for her kindness and gentleness. Your mother was a wonderful person, and she was so generous and giving towards others.
Our deepest condolences for your loss. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.
“And then I heard the angel say, ‘She’s with you every day. ‘ “
With deepest sympathy,
Brent, June, Shelley and Dean
Until we meet again, Dear Auntie Nadia, I will hold you close in my heart and in my thoughts. It comforts me to know you are now with the Heavenly Angels surrounded by love, peace and eternal happiness. I will miss you dearly.
