Oh, Niki, I love you so much. I remember the time you first came in my classroom after school… and we talked. We connected so quickly, and your smile and passion for life just filled my heart with our new friendship. I felt so blessed with the trust you placed in me, and likewise, how your sincerity and passion immediately connected us as “sisters.” I will forever and ever remember you as someone with a special place in my heart. Fly now with the angels, my dear friend. Carol 🌺

You and your family have been in my thoughts so often these past few weeks. Niki has been a light of positivity for so many of us! I've included a photo of her with me and a few friends after painting "vintage snowmen" back in December 2017.

My deepest sympathy to Niki's Mom, Dad, and partner Ryan. My thoughts are with you during this difficult time. I was so saddened by the news of Niki's passing. Niki was an amazing person, with a beautiful soul. She was so kind, thoughtfull, and full of joy. Niki touched the lives of so many people, and will be missed tremendously. When I think about Niki, I can see her smile and hear her laugh. I will cherish the twenty plus years of memories. Rest in peace my dear friend.

Carol, Ted, Family and Friends,
My heart just breaks with the sadness of Niki's passing. She was such a kind, sweet soul that I'm sure will be missed by so many.
I cannot imagine the pain everyone is going through right now. You have my my prayers and much love.

I remember Niki as a little girl and she was so fragile. Then she moved to Nevada with her family and I didn't see her for quite a long time. We reconnected at our Auntie Jeri's house in California for a Japanese New Year celebration many years later. It really struck me how she had blossomed into a vivacious, bright and happy young woman.

You must have been so proud of the woman she became. She has touched the lives of many through her teaching. Carol and Ted, I pray that your hearts will heal over time.
Luke and Michelle and family

Dear Carol and Ted. I’m so overwhelmed with this sad sad news of Niki’s passing. I know there are no words of compassion that can make you heal but know you are loved and our prayers are with you. My memory’s are of Niki when I babysat and she was in that walker. Oh so many years ago. God be with you.

Niki you were one of the sweetest, most kind, caring and thoughtful persons I have ever known. The thought that you have suddenly passed away from this life is a traumatic shock beyond belief for all of us & is truly heartbreaking. Your life was exemplary & ennobling, as you overcome adversity, chronic ailments and illnesses in a remarkably positive & upbeat manner and although your life was cut short, your impact was substantial, especially being such a positive role model to your community & as the outstanding teacher & guidance counselor that you were to so many of your students throughout the years. We are all deeply saddened and mourn your departure from this life but we will never forget you and the wonderful human being that you truly were. Ted and Carol my deepest sympathies & condolences for your loss. The pain, suffering & sadness of a parent losing a child is beyond belief & my comprehension. Niki was an unusually decent & kind human being & we will never forget her or the positive influence she had on all of our lives. Uncle John
