Our deepest sympathy on the passing over of Nook. We all have many fond memories of Nook. We hold her family in prayer and pray that Jesus will comfort all of you and hold you close during your time of grief. Nook is Home with Jesus now and she suffers no more. By now she has been given a new body and she has seen her Jesus, Face to face. When our Jesus carries us across, she will be right there, cheering us Home. God Bless!
