I met Mela on set here a little bit after she arrived in Los Angeles. She was a great person and had a good spirit. We hit it off and talked about life, love and where we see ourselves in the future in the city of angels working in this crazy industry. She introduced me to the food truck fest every month in Santa Monica and I showed her where to get the best donuts in town. Always doing silly stuff on our days off and helping each other and coworkers out whenever one needs a job. Eventually life and work take off and next thing you know months go by. I'm just now finding out her death and I never got to say goodbye or talk to you later. Another reason to cherish the people who bring positive energy into your life because tomorrow isn't promised to any of us. RIP Mela and thanks for being an influence in my life.

I met Nicole in Performing For the Media at Dutchess Community College. We hit it off immediately. Every class we would joke around, give tips, talk about our dreams. She was a rare light in this world. Honest to a fault and awesome all around. She knew we all had our faults, but she never judged. She will be missed.

I remember working the overnight shift with you at Newburgh Beacon Bridge and you throwing pennies at me all night. I remember you always smiling, always laughing. Long talks about your acting career. Telling me about all your travels. I will miss all the links you would send me to get a sneak peek at your next film. Sincere condolences to your family. I will miss you Nic....

I remember the first time you came to Alterniverse for our Toys For Tots celebration. Your publicist failed to send pictures for you to sign and you were rightfully upset.
But you rolled with it. Your genuineness and awesome personality lit up the room and everybody loved talking with you.
When I told everyone that you were coming back they got excited. You made the celebration so much better with your awesomeness.
The world was a much better place with you in it.
I will never, ever forget you. I miss you.

Wow what can I say? I remember the time you asked me to dress in all black and meet you on a rooftop in NYC for New Years Eve.... Thats my fondest memory! You are such an angel.. Fly high and watch over us as we all live our dreams just as you have!

Our hearts are breaking Nicole, Josh & I are so sad with your passing. I can only believe that God needed a very special little angel & knew it had to be you. You will always be remembered Nicole, I will never forget you waiting patiently for your Dad's Teriyaki Chicken Wings to get done. You would wait with your plate and jumped up & down like a jumping bean.

Mela directed and acted alongside my young son Dane on her Film Eight. However, it didn’t stop there. She was incredibly supportive and sweet. On set she encouraged my son how to ride a bike for the first time for a scene and they (together) made that scene happen. It’s heartbreaking to hear of this loss.
