I am so thankful that we re-connected in person after our 25 th year reunion from our university grad class of 1994. We had a beautiful time together that sunny day outside on a patio for lunch and then you toured me through the workplace briefly - a community OT job that we both loved very much and had in common.
I remember connecting by email when each of our sons were born - you in 2006 and then me in 2007. You and Mike were so proud of Braeden and in 2019 I witnessed how loving and caring you were on the phone with him. We had hopes that you would both visit us in Manitoba one summer coming up. From our conversation our boys have much in common.
I remember how when we lived in North Vancouver, we hiked up the Grouse Grind together. You loved the outdoors!
You has such an infectious love for life and positive energy. Your smile, laugh and spirit will never be forgotten.
I miss you and love you so much and I want to extend my deepest condolences to Braeden and all of Nicki's family and friends.

Christa and I are still reeling from the news of Nicki’s passing. Though years have gone by since we last connected, she was always a part of our family.
We first met Nicki in 1974 on the Caspian Sea Coast in Northern Iran. At the age of 10, she had accompanied her Mother, Norma, to live an adventurous life in a foreign country. We remember Nicki as being a bit shy with adults but she soon became a part of the expat community and made friends with the small group of Canadian children, including our two sons who were close to her in age.
After we left Iran and moved to the Turkish coast, Nicki and Norma took a long train ride from Iran to Mersin to visit us. Nicki loved exploring new places and cultures and enjoyed swimming in the Mediterranean. What a great swimmer she was!
Not long after their trip to visit us, they had to flee Iran and were evacuated to Turkey on Canadian Airforce planes. From there it was back to Canada eventually and she and Norma settled in Kerrisdale where Nicki finished her high school and later her university education. The Florey girls, Nicki, Norma and later Sandi spent much time with us, especially holiday celebrations. These times and the memories that were created have helped us through this sad time.
Christa and I send our best wishes to Nicki’s family, especially Braeden. We will always think of her with love and admiration. Nicki, you will always be in our hearts. We will be with all of you in thought as you celebrate Nicki’s life.
Love from Alf and Christa

What can I say? We had a 30 year friendship that saw marriage, birth, moves, hilarious bike trips and crazy road trips. But when we saw you and then Braeden each summer it was always just like old times. We are grateful this past summer we heard stories from your life and about your mom we had never heard before.
You were a remarkable person, but always humble, always you.
You are very missed and loved. We still hear you laughing in our cabin.

We were shocked and saddened by the news of Nicki’s sudden passing.
Nicki lived in our home in North Vancouver for many years. She was always such a kind, friendly and accepting person. Her empathy made her a great Occupational Therapist but her one true passion was her son Braeden. Nicki was so proud of him and all his accomplishments.
Nicki will be sorely missed.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family.

Nicki, I am so grateful that I had a chance to see you again after 25 years.I was so looking forward to reacquainting after the reunion and then covid hit and my chances to see you and others were put on hold. When I learned you had left us permanently I was shocked and devastated but happy I did see you and enjoy your wonderful personality once more!
I will cherish the silliness and laughs we had through those years at UBC. I remember your smile..always smiling, cracking jokes and keeping things light! Keep shining down on us..
My condolences to your family Peace and love Karen

You are missed. If only I knew the last time I saw you would be the last time, how I would make sure to tell you how special and loved you are. You were the calm and steady Nicki. We were so lucky to see you every day at the café for a long time. You were the favourite customer of our staff, the fun stories you would tell, everyone captivated hanging off your colourful stories. The familiar and comfortable vision of Nicki approaching the door … slooowly approaching. We laughed with you when you told us your mom said you had two speeds, “slow and stop”. Ha. We would laugh together, when even on the hottest days, you would never take off your jacket. We were all roasting hot, but not Nicki. A friend of ours described you as “someone that feels like home”. It is true. After a visit with you, I would leave feeling fulfilled and loved. Thank you for that. I think of you every day. Sometimes, I’m taken off guard seeing someone in the street and I think it is you. And with an ache in the tummy, the realization hits, it is not you. You are gone, but you will never be forgotten. You will be remembered for the lives you touched, the many circles of family, friends, colleagues, and clients you blessed with your time, love and attention. Dear Nicki, I hope you are watching us and guiding us, and that you can feel us thinking of you…missing you. Love Lana.

I am forever blessed that you came to live with us. It was a year of learning to share my bedroom, the grass-cutting allowance, and teenager ups and downs: But most of all, sweet Nicki, thank you for keeping us connected, visiting and opening up your house to all of us over the years.
You were a wonderful person, and an amazing mommy to Braeden, and much more.
Cousin, you were like a sister to me, and I miss you deeply but your memories live on forever.
Love Always, Valerie, Paul, Thomas, Virginia & Evan

She will truely be missed.
