    This note is late, but wanted to share with the family how special Nada was. She was a member of the class of 1964 of the Wendill L Willkie High School in Elwood, Indiana. She had many friends and it was great to see her at our 50th reunion where we relived many of our fun times when we were growing up in a small town. Bev and I send our prayers to her family and many, many friends.

Please share your thoughts ...
