Lost my dad on September 28, 1973 when I was pregnant with our beautiful daughter, Deidre. My dear mother passed away on October 28, 2009. I know my dad was right there to welcome her to Heaven and probably just exclaimed, “What took you so long, Nadine!” Deidre's dad Joe also passed, as a result of a car accident. I thank these wonderful people in heaven for their belief in me and for their encouragement while they were alive. I also thank my daughter Deidre, my husband Rick, my sisters Jean and Earline, my granddaughters Brenna and Claira, my brother-in-laws Billy and Jimmy, the rest of my dear family and friends, and most of all, I thank our dear heavenly Father up above for all the amazing experiences and accomplishments I've achieved in my lifetime.
