    Missy and Dana, I hadn’t seen your mom in years, but thought of her often. Always adored her and considered her a great friend when we worked together years ago. May your wonderful memories carry you through this rough time of loss. They may leave us in body, but nothing can take those memories away. My heart goes out to you.

    I helped Nina with her insurance and she was a joy! Also I knew her from the doctors office that she used to work at in Harrisonburg, VA. She was a friend as well as a client and was so very nice! I will miss seeing her during the Medicare open enrollment. She normally made the trip back to Harrisonburg.
