Dear Loved Ones of Nadene,
Nadene and I became very close friends working together at the Sioux City Police Department. I came to know her as a very kind and considerate co-worker. We used to go to movies, gambling and to dances during our time off. I will always cherish the friendship we had. She talked non-stop about Randy and Robyn. She loved both of you dearly and were so proud of both of you. I know you will miss her and I hope God eases the pain that you are going through at this difficult time. God Bless You both.

Randy and Robyn our hearts are with you at this hour of need. Her pain and suffering is over and now she is renewed in the eyes of our Lord, may it ease your pain that our love and continuing support to you Randy and you Robyn is foremost on our minds. Nothing I can say will help with the sorrow you feel and as time goes on you will heal and remember so many wonderful times that you had with your Mom. You both were so brave in letting her pass with dignity and grace. Both of our Moms were good tough Iowan women. Strong and loving. We love you both, Dink and Theresa
