What a beautiful lady Nubie was and will always be in my heart. I am so sorry I will not be able to pay my last respects to a woman who seemed like a mom to me. I am in Omaha helping my daughter move to Virginia. With deepest sympathy!

As a granddaughter of Darlene Volbracht, Darla and I got to play while aunt Nubie and grandma would visit. I will be out of town Friday but just wanted to let you know I’m sorry for your loss and I’ll be keeping your family in my prayers.
Walt, Darla, Debbie and Family - I am sorry for your loss - I wish you peace
