Remembering my sweet friend and Columbia College roommate, Nina, today on what should have been her 70th birthday. I will cherish all the precious memories of the time spent together from the fall of 1969 until the spring of 1972 when she married Joe, the love of her life. I am so sorry that I didn’t stay connected in our later years, but my life was blessed for having known Nina. I am so grateful that I saw you, Joe and Sara Bett, at the baseball field and learned about Nina’s passing. I hope our paths will cross again. Tish Charlton Crumpler 336-906-3686
