Donna & Jack - your entire family is in my prayers. No words can take away the heartbreak and I am so very sorry you are all going through this tragedy. I often think about the license plate she had a long time ago and it makes me smile. Even though I haven’t been around Nikki in a long time, I know she was one-of-a-kind who was loved deeply by you both.
