I know this is a difficult day for Nona's family because it is her birthday. I know that I woke up missing her so much today. I know she is in a better place, but I sure miss her. She was such a wonderful person--always so kind and caring and fun. I can still hear her laugh. I was amazed that even when she was not feeling well, she still asked me about myself and my family. She cared so much about people. I was blessed to work with her in the Clark County Manager's Office and then our paths brought us both to the DA's Office. When I left the County, we still remained in touch and would have dinner together from time to time. She was like a mother to me, and I will always love her.
