Wasn’t it once Nicki? I wasn’t sure if you had made up your mind on that. Anyways, I miss your face. Your big, warm smile....and your even bigger presence. We were very close in early childhood. Crenshaws after school, running back and forth from each other’s house in Cat Mountain, swimming in the neighborhood pool, and having sleep-overs. I remember mourning with you and Susan over the loss of Art. I’ll never forget how truly in-love I saw your parents. And have referenced that my whole life, since I never saw it in my household. Fast forward to our 20’s with us catching up over you doing my hair. I liked you being creative with hair and beauty.
Beautiful, vibrant, genuine...is how I remember you. 💗
Hugs to the family.

I met Nikki at Hyde Park. She had this smile that lit up the room. She was nice to me when I really needed someone to just be a friend. I’m so sorry for the loss of such a loving soul. God speed, beautiful girl❤️

I spent two summers with Art, Susan & the kids. Nikki was three the first summer I was there. She was a white hot light that attracted people to her, even at that age, with her infectious smile and personality. I was either smiling or laughing at something she was said or was doing. She and Casey were either annoying each other or thick as thieves. I love them both and will miss her greatly. I last spoke to her about 9 months ago and wish I had not let as much time pass. Nik, you and your Dad keep each other company and keep all of our seats warm-I will see you again!

My only memory will be her constant smile and wonderful personality. She was one of my favorites of my kids friends. I will never forget your bright light and hope you have found your peace.
