I am so grateful that our paths crossed in this lifetime, as you were a gentle soul with so much love to give. I will never forget the moments we shared. You were loved by so many and you will be missed. May your soul rest peacefully in God's Kingdom.

With love, I say farewell. Luna

To Nikki's family, you will be in my prayers.

Tried my best to be there for you, your mom, Beau, and his family today. I’m always going to miss you girl. I was extremely proud of you. You really were happy. Dreams were coming true. There’s going to be a room full of people today that will miss you just as hard. Recognition of just how special you are. Always loving, and loved by so many. Rest now Nakoa. Love you. Always in my prayers.

Miss. Nikki’s little voice will ring loud in clear in my mind for eternity. My memories with her are so vast, when I remember her, I am lucky to see her dancing and smiling.

She was my mom, my parental figure and driving force throughout my teenage years. I’m thankful to have seen her sparkling for so many years.

I have known Nikki since she was born. Her mom was like a sister to me and our families were very close, spending holidays together. Our children also grew up together, Nikki and my son were the same age. I loved Nikki like a niece. I last saw her radiant smile a few years ago at her moms birthday party, it was a surprise that she had planned. It was so wonderful to see Deb, Nikki, Beau and the children. Fond memories. I cannot believe Nikki has left us so soon. She was so beautiful inside and out.
Rest In Peace beautiful Angel. 💔

I absolutely cannot believe that this is real. You were such a kind human. All you ever wanted out of life was to be the best Mom ever to your 4 children; Alysa, Donavyn, Lucas and Dakota, to be loved deeply and to love others. You succeeded in all of these and then some. Anyone you met, liked you instantly. You made everyone feel like they were the only person in the world at that time. I will never forget all of the fun times at your grandpa’s house but the one event that I will never forget was when you put together a joint birthday party for your Donavyn and my nephew Dominick both born within days of one another. You didn’t have to include Dom, but you did - the cake with photos of both of the boys was awesome. I can’t believe there are never going to be anymore of these fun times.
Damn Nakoa, you were not supposed to get your wings before me.,..I’ve lived my life….yours was just falling in place. God and I have been having very deep conversations about Him calling you home. I’m angry…you should still be in Florida in the pool with Dakota or on some sort of adventure with your kids. I keep checking your Facebook page to see that you just posted something and this was all a bad dream. But that isn’t happening. I love you Nik. I am positive that you are flying through Heaven with your golden wings. Heaven must have needed a very special angel…and that was you. Fly high Nakoa, always watch over the ones you loved and please save a seat for me sweet lady. If you see Karen please give her a hug for me and tell her I miss her. Till we meet again Nik, my friend … I love you. 💔

I can’t even begin to express how I really feel! This just doesn’t seem real. One thing I can certainly say is real was your heart. I’m honored and thankful for all the times we had together and the memories I will forever cherish. I won’t say this is a goodbye but I will say I’ll see you later. Forever in our hearts. Love you and thank you for always being YOU! RIP Nikki
