Condolence Messages

  1. I would like to send my deepest condolences to the Rickard’s family. I worked for many years with Nadine; initially on K Cluster and then on the combined unit J Cluster at the Alberta Children’s Hospital. She was a dear colleague and a delight to work with. She was always ready to give a helping hand and an encouraging word. Nadine took pride in her work and genuinely cared about the children and families she cared for. I know she will be fondly remembered by the whole crew from J Cluster.

  3. Trevor and Todd I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your Mom. I have so many fond memories of our time together in Munster like the lunch times in the front yard, the time spent in the pool and the camping trips to Charleston Lake. And last but not least was my trip for Easter weekend from Ottawa to Calgary to visit my best friend.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. Pat Lampman (late Jim)

    I am very saddened and heartbroken to hear of the news of Nadine’s passing. I had the pleasure of working with Nadine at Health Link Alberta for a number of years as her Manager. She and I had developed a special bond before she retired which I will never forget. Her life was not easy at times but I hope that you can find solace in knowing she was so kind and caring and touched many people’s hearts.

  11. I worked with Nadine at Health link in Calgary- Im glad for the few laughs we shared and for some of the more important parts of her life I was lucky to have her share with me, her work, growing up in a rural setting, and our shared quirky sense of humour.
    Rest well Nadine, rest well

    I am very saddened to hear of Nadine’s passing. I did not know Nadine as well as some of our co-workers at Calgary Health Link, but I did know she was a caring, loving and hard working nurse!! She spoke of her family often, we shared many stories at break time. She was very friendly when I first started at Health Link and I am happy I did have a chance to see her a couple of times after she retired!!
    God Bless
