Sorry for your loss. Nadine and I would see each other down the hallway at school everyday. We would share our stories of working with the kids at school and how much joy they bring us. Nadine’s smile and positivity always brightened my day. We also shared a passion for interior design and would talk about our latest idea, project or something we liked from a design show on TV. She was a beautiful person inside and out. My deepest sympathy to the Oslund family.
