  1. My thoughts and prayers are with the Jones and Burgan families. Nina was such a precious lady. Both she and Walter Carl touched my life in a very special way.

  2. My prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time. She is with your dad and with God now….she is in good hands. Let me know if I can do anything for you.

  3. Sweet, dear Nina… we dearly loved her and Walter Carl.
    Knowing them in Masonic and Eastern Star works while living in Bryan. Our three daughters, Karen, Kathy and Susan served in the Order of Rainbow for Girls under her direction while she was their Mother Advisor. Nina played a big part in my becoming Mother Advisor after her.
    Nina was indeed a truly great lady, serving our Christ.
    Fred and I send our love, prayers and thoughts to the family.

  4. Mr. Ronny and Kay,

There’s not anything that I can say that you don’t already know but please find comfort in knowing that your family’s faith has always been an inspiration to me. Your faith, your devotion to God, your loving family and friends are a source of your strength. Your family is so loved.

  5. Dear Ronny and Kay and family-
    I am very sad to learn of Nina’s death. Sorry I didn’t know sooner so I could have come by to visit with you. She was a very special lady and a precious friend. I will miss her very much. You will all be in my prayers in the days ahead. Much love,
    Cindi Scofield

  6. Ronny, Carl, Leslie and families,
    You are all in our thoughts and prayers…Nina was one of our favorite people. We were so glad to have the chance to visit at chemo over those last few weeks; her cheery outlook on life even then was amazing and uplifting. God be with you all. Love, Mackie Mitchell and Marilon Morris
