We were able to get to know Nikki in PCJ. We were fortunate to witness her baptism there. She traveled a rough road we know, and are sorry to hear of her passing at such a young age.

I was at new leaf with nikki and we became good friends. I am so sorry for your loss. She was an amazing person and had such a bright light inside of her. I remember us just sitting and talking for hours, and her being so caring and loving...Always giving me great advice. I remember helping her with her English homework in there and us just having an instant connection. Always had a smile on her face in there. I still have her birthday card she made me when we were there, and I made one for her our birthdays were only a few days apart. I am just so very sorry for your loss and you guys will be in my prayers.
