  1. When I was little I used to think you were a movie star you are so beautiful and your smile lit up a room and your personality just shined so bright I have very fond memories of you. Still to this day I bring out the pumpkin that you made for me in fact it is out right now and the Santa Claus that you made for me and the Easter Bunny those are used every year and I think about you each time and you spent so much time on those for me and I will cherish them forever and you’ll always be in my heart and never forgotten. I Love you Co…….Tiff

  2. I met Nickie in Dec 1965, and altho our interests were not the same, I cannot shoot for one thing, we quickly became friends. She attended church with me, & I drove her many miles on trips to see family or just for a vacation. I loved her family & they accepted me into their group. We had our ups and downs as all friends do, but down deep we always loved each other . I will miss you for sure , but I know Cal was so glad to see his Baby ! This isn’t goodbye, I’ll see you later !

  3. For almost 20 years, you had a very special place in my heart…I’ve been flooded with memories today, of all our times spent together. You were always a part of my family and you will be terribly missed. Gone…but never forgotten. I loved you for who you were, and there will never be another you! I was privileged to have you, and Cal, in my life. My sympathies to your family, and friends.
