  1. Nina was a dear friend. She was always there for me when I needed a thursday afternoon service partner. I will miss her. I look forward to welcoming her back in the new system!

  2. I remember the day that Nina signed up for fencing classes and so many other MAJOR events in our lives. I remember John taking that cruise with us to Mexico. It’s a blow to the gut to know now that she had been ill & that we lost our beautiful (oh so beautiful), fun, warm, loving long-ago long-time friend. I understand you are starting a trust. We could/would do that for you — Sheila, Harry, John and family – with great sadness and deepest condolences. love dee dee (Nina and Gloria’s friend)

  3. It was very shocking and saddening to get the news of Nina’s passing. I was fortunate to work with Nina for a few years, and even more fortunate spend some time in LA and meet her family. She was always very kind, and generous with her time and resources. Condolences to Harry, Sheila and Sasha. Nina, I was glad I got to know you paly waly.

  4. My dear Singh family, I am just off the phone with John as he is driving back home to Santa Maria. Saddened to know that our beautiful sister Nina is no longer with us. I can only share my memories of Nina in our 20s when John and I were roommates … Her bright, sharp wit; always full of fun, genuine care and life, and quick to share a wink, a tease and a laugh. You are all in my family’s thoughts and prayers as we all celebrate Nina’s life. Much love, – Mike, Annemarie, Emma, Maddie & Ben

  5. Words cannot begin to express my grief at the loss of my dear neighbor of almost 10 years and my sorrow for your family. I loved her dearly and will do anything I can to assist you in this transition. I’m here to help you in any way. She was a special person, smart, sweet and giving. We spoke all of the time, and I miss her so much. May God bless your family, watch over you and begin to heal you. I know that Nina is in Heaven. I’ll see her again one day.

  6. I just want everyone close to Nina to know that in the few years that I have known her I’ve been utterly amazed at her accomplishments, overwhelmed at her load, encouraged by her endurance, and very sadly stunned when her life force ran out. Nina’s desire that everyone be happy made her a great friend and someone to talk to to share thoughts, ideas, feelings, experiences, hopes, dreams and when she had the strength even frustrations, worries and fears. My only wish is that I could have been more able to help her in times of need and have a remedy to her dilemma. So often I think about her, especially when I encounter a new discovery which might be just what she needs. Yet, I didn’t want her to be overwhelmed with suggestions, or the worry that I was worrying for her. As It is I do know that she had great concern for Sasha, and I wnat to express my desire to help in anyway that I can. I’m not sure how or where my abilities match his needs, but one thing that I may be able to offer is that it has been a consideration for myself to study sign language for my own personal and family reasons, and it has occurred to me that this may be an endeavor which might benefit Sasha greatly. When I do this I would be tremendously thrilled to learn alongside and assist him, and Sofia and anyone else who would like to gain this communication skill also. That’s one thought, if you can think of any other way that I can help, please do let me know. All my love, many thoughts and prayers, Alice Vickers

  7. It is with a heavy heart that I learn of my dear friend Nina’s passing. We were high school friends, very close and I always thought we would meet again. She was one of the warmest, most thoughtful, caring people I have ever met. She always tried to take care of everyone around her. My condolences to her family and, my heart is a little lighter knowing that she has a son. With tears and loving memories, Terri Falconer Landau
