Our deepest sympathy to all the family. You all have always been special to us and words cannot express our love for all of you. I have such fond memories of Nikkie, always smiling, laughing and could make anyone feel like you were her best friend. That is an amazing trait because we were not around her that much. I must say that all of you were blessed to have her as wife, mom, grandmother, sister and friends to many. She was truly beautiful inside and out. I know she is even more beautiful in her heavenly home. Just know we love you all and we will keep you in our prayers.
