Dear Bill and Janet and family,

We were all saddened to hear of Nicki’s passing. She was such a kind woman and we all really loved her. She would always stop and give Josh a ride home from school or come down to the fence to give him a hug after football games. I don’t know if GOD makes people like Nicki anymore. What a treasure! God bless you all as you cope with her loss. Sincerely,

Ann and Larry Harding and family
