I just found out about Nickel. I met Nickel thru my Mom, Ann (Granny) McGuire. My Mom use to work at the Piggly Wiggly many many years ago and Nickel and my Mom became good friends. I will never forget Nickel being a faithful friend to my Mom while she was in the hospital during her final days here on earth. She was a faithful visitor and Nickel would always say the sweetest heartfelt prayers for my Mom. I am sorry for your loss but excited to know she is right where she would want to be and that is with Jesus. I am quite sure my Mom and Nickel are exploring Heaven together.
