I adored Nina and so did my parents, Lew and Gen Belville. She and Virgil were great helps to them at Vermont Bible Church. I worked with Nina when I was a young nurse--she was always such a great worker!   My heart is broken at your loss but I know she had accepted Christ as her Savior and is in Heaven with Jesus right now. Looking forward to seeing her again!!
Will be praying for the whole family. I Peter 5:7
