Shenica was one of the sweetest, gentle spirits that I have ever known. The thing that I admired most about her was her unwavering faith in God;she wore it like a badge of honor and I deeply respected that. She truly loved her family and adored her granbabies; they were everything to her.Gods speed, Nica.My life is indeed richer for having known you

I spoke with Nika several times over the past few months. She always had a positive outlook and was constantly reminding me God would take care of both of us and relieve our pain. She was a true friend and I will miss her.
