Our thoughts and prayers are with you Jimmy and the rest of the family. As I was growing up and into my adult life I always enjoyed seeing Nubbin. She was always funny and told it like it was. She'll be missed.

We all had some great times with Nubbin. These times are now memories for us to keep as Nubbin moves on to a better place where one day we will all meet up with her and our other loved ones. May she rest in peace. My condolences to Jimmy and his family.
