Dear Nagelkerke family,
My sympathies to you all on the passing of your wife, mother, and grandmother.
I have such fond memories of Bev. She was always so much fun and loved to laugh. As a kid, it was fun to spend time at your house largely due to her. You were fortunate to have her as the matriarch of your family. Keep the memories of her in your heart.
