I will always have precious memories of Natalie. She was a warm, charming, patient person with a brilliant and quick smile, and an equally brilliant and quick mind. Natalie became my "junior" at LM when she first joined our team, and quickly mastered what many others could not. She did this with hard work and a charming wit. She often talked about Bryon and their desire to start a family, and left our team so that she could stay home to do so. After she left, she shared photos of her lovely babies with me, and talked about how precious they were to her. My prayers will be with her family. She will be missed.

I sit here and try to think of just one memory of Nicole and my mind becomes flooded. Memories of us playing in our yards, running back and forth from each others house daily. I remember how when she would laugh so hard her eyes would water like she was crying. I can never for get that smile. Our favorite saying in middle school was "I smile cause I have no idea what's going on". So much time we spent at swim practice, volleyball practices, or just simply her and I playing volleyball in the front yard. She was so good at every sport, it just came natural to her. I remember a time when we just laid in the middle of the street because the asphalt was warm and it was just a beautiful day. Robert caught us and told us to "watch out for thoose elephants roaming around, they might come and squash you..." we laughed till it hurt. We had to be only 8 at the time but it showed her love of life and the simple things. Or the time I fell when I was climbing the tree in her back yard, and we were so scared we would get in trouble, I had to fight the tears back. I honestly think that was the first time I had the air knocked out of me! Or how Barkley would run to end of the block and we would run after him laughing. Or how we would watch Amanda get ready for school, and couldn't comprehend what took so long. Nicole had this strong quiet presence and always wore a smile because she was always happy always. We had the biggest thing in common: we were both daddy’s girls. Never did I think I wouldn’t continue life with her, not a single moment did I anticipate writing this. And as I may struggle through the future time without her smile, her laugh and her beautiful energy in this world I know that our friendship was created to withstand miles of distance. And she will forever me my best friend.
