My condolences to the family of Ms. Nina. I am a former member of Horse Cave Baptist Church, and my what memories I have of such a fine lady. I was 11 when I joined the church and stayed till I was 30 and was married. She supported the youth in all ways she could. Her encouragement for children and youth was very admirable and important to all of us who were in her presence. Just know that this fine lady was remarkable, kind to all, and loved her Lord. May God grant peace as Ms. Nina goes to her heavenly home.

I knew Ms. Nina several years ago when I worked at Sims Bookkeeping in Horse Cave. She was truly a loving and elegant lady! I am so sorry and sad to hear of her passing. The world has truly lost a shining star but Heaven has gained a most beautiful Angel. You all will be in my thoughts and prayers today and for the days to come.
