Nicolette was a pleasure to work with as a cheerleader in high school. My thoughts and prayers are with all of her family and friends.

Nicolette was a kind, sweet gal. I thoroughly enjoyed my cheerleading experiences with her and have fond memories. She was a good listener but expressed an opinion when necessary, qualities which I’m sure she carried with her throughout her life. I am so saddened by her death. My sympathy to the entire family. She will be missed. Jane

Nicolette, I am for a loss of words. Summers in Old Town Scottsdale were some of my FAVORITE memories. Sand volleyball with the boys, pool parties, dance parties, going out... you had introduced me to such a great group of friends.
My heart goes out to Steve, your kids and your entire family. You will never be forgotten- you are one of the kindest, sweetest people I know, with the biggest heart. Will forever love you, Nippletoot.

Anytime I spoke to Nicolette it was a joy, she was so kind to all. Although I only knew her a few years she will always hold a special place in my heart.

Gia and Jackson, your mom loved you more than you will ever know. She was so proud of you both and was so happy to be your mother.

Please know how much our family loved Nicolette and love you guys too. Never hesitate to reach out for anything you need!
Love,
The Lake family

Always filled with a gentle kindness, Nicolette was loved by her cousin Brendan James, who thought very highly of her accomplishments in life. I enjoyed attending Christmas cookie parties and discussing educational topics with Nicolette.
This picture is from all of us celebrating your wedding!! I loved that we shared the same anniversary date May 7th!

Your bright smile will be missed by many.
My condolences,
