Anna, Jack, Billy Jack and family,
My sincere condolences. Nikki was person who had such a beautiful soul. I have known Nikki since we were about 5 years old went to Holy Spirit School and Bishop Ryan High School together. This is a very sad time for the family but remember that Nikki is being remembered by many friends also. I am keeping Nikki in my prayers and keeping you all close in my thoughts and prayers also. This is a trying time for you all and letting you know that we are thinking about you all.
Wishing you strength to get through this very sad time and cherish the memories that she had created and shared with you all always she lives on in your hearts forever.
If tears could build a stairway
And memories were a lane
We would walk right up to heaven
And bring you back again
No farewell words were spoken
No time to say goodbye
You were gone before we knew it
And only God knows why
Our hearts still ache in sadness
And Secret tears still flow
What it meant to lose you
No one will ever know
But now we know you want us
To mourn for you no more
To remember all the happy times
Life still has much in store
Since you’ll never be forgotten
We pledge to you today
A hallowed place
Within our hearts
Is where you’ll always stay
Always remembered by your laugh and smile Nikki...never forgotten....

Billy Jack, Anna and Jack, my deepest condolences on your loss of a wonderful mother and daughter. Nikki was one of my best friends from the time we were 4 years old starting in Junior Kindergarten. My heart is broken over this tragic loss that I have no words to explain. I think of Nikki and I smile at the wonderful memories I will always carry with me.
Rest In Peace my dear friend. 💜

I felt an angel near today, though one I could not see
I felt an angel oh so close, sent to comfort me
I felt an angel’s kiss, soft upon my cheek
And oh, without a single word of caring did it speak
I felt an angel’s loving touch, soft upon my heart
And with that touch, I felt the pain and hurt within depart
I felt an angel’s tepid tears, fall softly next to mine
And knew that as those tears did dry a new day would be mine
I felt an angel’s silken wings enfold me with pure love
And felt a strength within me grow, a strength sent from above
I felt an angel oh so close, though one I could not see
I felt an angel near today, sent to comfort me.

Nikki was like a sister to me when we were in elementary school. There wasn’t much that we didn’t do together.
There are so many fond memories that I wouldn’t know where to begin.
Nikki will forever be in my heart.
For Anna and Jack, I send you hugs and my condolences.
R.I.P Nikki. Yours wings may have been ready for you to fly but our hearts were not.
