  1. I was so very lucky to have gotten to know you, and will miss our frequent chats. I was always rooting for you, even back in our Dunkin days. I was so very sad to read that you were gone not only for you but your Mom. She loved you dearly and always wanted to see you happy. May you now be at peace and free, fly high with the angels. Rest easy my sweet, loving, genuine, inspiring and sometimes silly friend. I will always remember you.

    Sending love to your Mom, family, and many many friends as we all grieve losing you.

    Rest easy ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’œ

  3. Dear Nancy,
    My deepest condolences life and death are a sad reality of life and wish i had more time to spend with my cousin. Regardless of time i loved her and am heart broken at her early departure. I wish there where words to make the impact less. But no words can cure this. The only thing i can say is i love you, dale and loved nikki.
