So sorry to hear about the passing of your mom. I worked with her when I first started working at the Air National Guard Base in 1998. May you always remember the great times with her.

I'm very sorry to hear of Nicky's passing, even though I know she is with God, free of all illnesses and problems. I remember a special time when her family lived in a desert community, taking care of a gas station and a restaurant. Nicky contracted a serious illness and was in hospital for quite a long time. My family met up with her family after Nicky was released, and we celebrated her return and enjoyed a wonderful time together. She turned out to be quite a special lady. God's blessings upon Nicky and for her family.

So sorry to hear of your loss. My mind wanders to happier times spent with Nicky as a child. My parents bought the house on the east side of Melcher that they lived in. Nicky and I spent many hours playing in the neighborhood. God bless you all.
