    Nikki you are truly going to be missed here on this earth. You brought a light like no other to any room you stepped into and now it will shine from the heavens above. I will always cherish our chats and friendship. Until we meet again. We will always love you!

    NikkibI will certainly miss our catch up phone calls that we made happen at least twice a month if not more. You were a great niece but above all that you gave 100% + to everything and everyone you loved and believed in. Give kisses to all the family that has greeted you there from me. Love Aunt Lalaine (Elaine)

    You were a light like no other sweet girl. Anybody that had the honor of meeting you was blessed beyond measure. You lit up any room you walked in to. Your love for your family and friends was one for the books dear; for you loved deeply and therefore will be missed even more!! It goes without saying, but you will be missed more than words can describe. Your memory will live on through your family and friends and prayers will cover them each day that lies ahead. Rest easy sweetheart – you won your race. ❤

    On behalf of Nikki’s fellow employees at her employer, Alliance Health, we all want to express our deepest sympathy to Timmeo and the family. Nikki made everything she touched at Alliance better. And that spark helped thousands of people live healthier lives. She put everyone’s needs ahead of her own, and we will do our best to honor her memory by walking the path she laid out so clearly.

    • Doug Fuller Posted May 24, 2022 8:13 pm

      I am also one of Nikki’s colleagues at Alliance. I am heartbroken at your loss and pray that God’s peace and comfort would be on you all.

    Timmeo and family,

    My heart is broken for your loss. The world lost an amazing person. She definitely made this world a brighter and better place. Timmeo, if there is ever anything you need, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
    “…weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.”
    – Psalm 30:5

    Timmeo my condolences to you and the family on the loss of your wife. You and your family are in my prayers.

  • Vera Reinstein Posted May 25, 2022 3:47 pm

    Nikki was such a pleasure to work with, always upbeat and energetic and so incredibly motivated and hardworking. I was inspired by her military service (squeezed into weekends then, in between full time work and family) and then more recently full-time school and work. II don’t know how she did it all, She clearly adored her children and husband. In the Jewish tradition, we say, may her memory be a blessing; I know hers most definitely will. Timmeo, if you need anything, please reach out to Nikki’s Alliance family, of which I’m a pharmacist.

  • Ginger Tevepaugh Posted May 26, 2022 1:04 am

    Timmeo I am so sorry for your families loss. I only knew Nikki a short time but she was one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met. There is nothing we can say to take this pain away but know she touched so many lives and you and your family are loved.

  • Ella Jo Thompson Posted May 27, 2022 11:36 pm

    Jimmie and Family: I am so very sorry to hear of Nikki’s passing. I pray for all of you and that you will find comfort, peace and understanding through God’s love. I remember such a pretty and vibrant young girl when our daughters were playing, cheering and going to school together. God Bless. Ella Jo

    Please accept my sincere condolences. I worked with Nikki for a number of years always a bright smile for everyone. Rest in Paradise
