Nicki was a free spirit. She expressed her spirituality through her paintings and poetry. When painting, she often said she felt free. Her talent of painting has been passed down to her beloved daughter, Addi. They spent many hours enjoying this special bond they had.
She enjoyed spending many hours studying constellations. She could name them all and the meaning behind each one. Nicki also loved playing and singing rock and roll.
Nicki believed death isn’t the end. She knows there’s a Heaven and often saw the Angels in the clouds.
