Niki, my heart is hurting for you and your family with the recent loss of your mother. I wish I had words of comfort to share and make this all easier but I dont. Just know you will all be in my thoughts and prayers and I will be there for you all if you need anything. Maxx
Grandma its been a month already you left us. The sadness is there as though it was yesterday. The way i deal with this is thinking of all the little things we did and talked about. For you it was always those little things that mattered. You were never materialistic and shallow. You gave with your heart and always put others first. You were always there. I miss you so much my little rock. Love you ! Jody
My most sincere condolences for the lost of your dear mother, with love Zion
It was an honour to work with her. Nikki. You made her last days special. She will be greatly missed
