Dear Gord, Sheryl and Family,
I wanted to express our deepest condolences from my family to yours. I have wonderful memories of many summers spent at the trailer park with both of our families. We have shared much over the years with the loss of Jodi, Sharon and most recently my Mom.
I had the pleasure of being a part of the team to help Nina over the last few years as she bravely fought her battle. She was a very classy, funny and a genuinely nice lady. She will be missed.
Jennifer, Jake and Leanne

Our deepest condolences to Gord and Sheryl and family. We have been good friends with the Little family for over 40 years. We had a lot of time together on trips to Myrtle Beach, an Alaskan cruise, Arizona and Florida. So many good memories. Nina was a very talented lady. She loved knitting and crocheting and made many beautiful afghans over the years. She loved playing cards and Scrabble and was very lucky. We met all her family in Arizona. She was a wonderful, thoughtful friend and will certainly be missed. She fought the good fight. Your friends Bryon and Marilyn Brown
