My deepest sympathies go out to the family and many friends of Nicole. I had the privilege of knowing Nicole during our grad school - MSW program experience at Texas State. She was such an intelligent beautiful young woman with a heart full of joy and the genuine care and concern for others. Nicole will be missed. God Bless.

My deepest sympathies go to Nicole's family. I had the privilege of working with Nicole for several years at Worker's Assistance Program. Her commitment to making the work a better place was evident to all who came in contact with her. Her zest for life and undaunted spirit were so evident to all of us who worked with her. Many people live their whole lives and never accomplish what she was able to do in a brief time on earth. I feel blessed to have known her and have her in my life.
