I haven't seen Nicole in a few years and I attempted to contact her, but found this. A hole has opened in my heart. I miss Nic tremendously. She'll always be my Shanghai Lowstepper. RIP, friend.

I met Nicole so many years ago. Her charm, her wit and of course her loveliness I have not forgotten. Her incredible sense of self has never left me - I believe to be ones self is often the hardest thing to be. Nicole was this Nicole was herself - she shaped my life. I thank you both for sharing her with us.

I am very sad, we met in Ischia, Italy, 5-6 years ago. She was with Antonella, her cousin. They were my guests in a small village on the sea. I remember she bought a very beautiful pin for her collection. I can't believe what's happened. I express my deepest sympathy to her family.

To Our dear friends and their family,

Our families have always been intertwined and still are. Nicole grew up with Denise and Dave and she was a part of our family. She will be deeply missed.
All our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Dear Rich, Sharon, and Corey,

To say I was shocked at the news of Nikki's passing is an understatement. I am so very sorry for the loss and pain you have experienced. Words and platitudes matter not much in these times. I can only say you have my deepest and most heartfelt sympathies. I simply cannot imagine what you are feeling now, but obviously I am here for you if there is ever anything I can do for you. I am also very sorry I cannot be at the memorial service today (February 9). The latest winter storm had other plans for me and I am unfortunately out of the country. I am so sorry for all your pain, guys. I hope to speak with you all soon.

Uncle Rich,Aunt Sharon,and Corey,I'm very sorry to hear about Nicole. I was very proud of her and bragged to my friends about her knowing different celebrities, and the work she did for them. I love yas and may you have the strength during these hard times. I really wish i could have been there to say goodbye.
