Nicki's great humor and loving, caring nature will be missed greatly. I wish I reached out more. I wish I was able to hang out with you one last time.
You apparently did a lot of wonderful things and helped a LOT of people. That's your legacy. May it carry forward and make you proud ❤️❤️rest easy sister. And you can haunt me any time

Condolences to Nicki's family and loved ones. I will always love her with all my heart. From the moment we met, Nicki never gave up on me. Through difficult struggles she was always there for me. Cheering me on, giving me hugs, and showing me hope and a better way. We became friends and I will cherish that into eternity. She touched many lives and my heart is broken. I also know this pain is temporary and one day I will see her in heaven.

I met Nicky about 14 yrs ago i was a 15. i didnt have anyone teaching me right from wrong for that little period of time.. i was headed all wrong. we worked at mosers together and we became extremely close. her smile her eyes i mean beautiful! HEART & ALL! She came to work daily, helping me with her better advice when i was unsure -which was probably 24-7! THEN she started taking me home with her from work to her house in Fulton... her room mates loved her! She inspired me to get my 1st apartment! and i did. Some years passed and we reuntited and she became a big support thru my rocky addiction i struggled with for 8 yrs... she so happened to work at the local treatment center "Mccambridge Center" she supported me from the days i arrived there extremely sick and hopeless.. i would come in basically so lost i didnt care what happened to me at that point i wanted to be done fighting a battle ide always lose to. IT TAKES A GOOD FRIEND to put her job duty on hold bc your in my room sitting with me in the little bitty bed, wiping my sweat, holding my hair for me, forcing me to shower,eat, try, go to class,strive to get better. & if that didn't work i would leave rehab and nicky done beat me to the door, she wouldnt let me leave. She was not going to let me give up on myself. & i thank GOD that i didnt. friends like her are who motivate me to stay clean today, always messaging me saying "R u ok?" its really sweet and comforting to know you have a good friend or two that u know honestly cares about your well being. she played with my son Taj alot. She helped show me what to do with my son when i was too blind to see the fact that i had such a blessing.she loved helping others. thank u for everything love!
Just know that if it was me with Nicky on her last day here, it would have never been her last day here. i would have removed her from anything that seemed off or suspicious.
Rest in peace Nickybear. I love u.

I like Kilanda worked with Nicki at McCambridge, My Nic 'A Roo' as I called her will never be forgotten. She touched all of the girls life in many ways as well as my own. Nic a Roo showed me that living and giving was a gift from God. She adored all that came in contact with her. She taught us all life lessons
Ti the family I am so sorry for your lost, she was one if a kind and she will be missed.

I use to work with Nicki at McCambridge. I remember when I first met her she was just this ball of energy. You could never keep up with her. She brought so much laughter to us and gave us so many memories. I have so many memories of her and for that I’m thankful. She helped me through a few difficult times while I worked there. She was definitely taken too soon. But her advocacy will forever live on. Tammy my heart goes out to you during this time. Just know that your daughter was amazing person and she has left her mark on so many other people as well.
