My favorite thing was to make candles with my grandma. She always loved the vanilla candles and every time I smell them, I can hear her laugh. I love you grandma, make sure you keep an eye on us rowdy grandkids. ❤️

She was loving and kind and had a heart of gold. Loved most that she was honest and told you how it was. She was a truly awesome lady.

I had the pleasure to have met Niki and become a good friend and neighbor at Sky Bird Manor. She was a tough woman who told you how it was but yet had a kind heart and I loved her laugh. May she be at peace and may she always be alive in the hearts and memories of Ryan, her children and grandchildren. God Bless Niki!!
