I’m lost for words. The memories of my first concert and so many after. Nikki getting me into Motley Crue then Jason introducing me to Slayer, paint balling, her teaching me to stand tall. I love & miss you so much Nikki. Nikki was my youth. She was my great times. She will forever be in my heart. I am so sorry Jason, Damien, Bonnie, Brub & Earl. I love & miss all of you.

The loss of Nikki saddens me greatly. I knew her as a child, and got reacquainted as an adult. Her heart was full of love and I treasured the friendship that we had. Whenever I saw her, she would bring a smile to my face. What a lovely person, who will be deeply missed.

My condolences to her husband and child, her brother and her parents, and all of the lives that Nikki touched. May God watch over you and comfort you during this difficult time.

Love, Patty Dickerson
